Pilloried by the public after appearing in a controversial West End play, actor Steven Toast is recently-divorced and living with his friend Ed Howzer-Black and Ed's elderly mistress Goodhouse, an agoraphobic who has not left the house in two years for fear of a local flasher. He would move into the club where his shell-shocked ex-soldier brother Blair lives but Ray Purchase, a rival actor who caught Toast in bed with his wife, prevents it. Toast auditions to play a gay detective in 'Summer Time Murders' but has to audition in prison since the producer Cliff Promise has been sent down for racial chanting and the audition leads to a riot. After a long-winded voice-over session, Toast returns home to watch 'Crimewave' on TV and finds that Purchase, who also works as a police artist, has used his face in the Identikit picture of the flasher.
