QUEENS OF MYSTERY, SMOKE AND MIRRORS, EPISODES 5 & 6 (Acorn TV Original)

The final two-part mystery in Series 1. The series follows a perennially single female detective, Mattie Stone, and her three aunts - the motherly Aunt Beth, the rebellious Aunt Cat and the book smart Aunt Jane - who are well-known crime writers that help her solve whodunit style murders, as well as set her up on blind dates. This two-part mystery, Smoke and Mirrors, focuses on a local theatre where an adaptation of one of Aunt Jane's books is being mounted. Hopes are high, particularly as celebrated thespian Sir Lawrence Shaw has persuaded his twice ex-wife Dame Blanche Chastain out of retirement to take a small role. But when a large sandbag falls, crushing one of the cast, Matilda's investigations lead her to conclude this was no accident. As Matilda works her way through her suspects - the larger than life cast and crew of the play - Cat and Beth do some investigating of their own, and uncover bribes and secret obsessions behind the scenes. The plot thickens when a second body is found, and one of the remaining cast absconds. There will be more bodies on the stage floor unless Matilda acts fast. Guest starring former Bond girl Carmen Du Sautoy (The Man with the Golden Gun).

DESCRIPTION:
(from Acorn TV's press release, March 2019) Marking the third commission for Acorn TV, this fun female-led British mystery follows a perennially single female detective, Mattie Stone (Olivia Vinall, The Woman in White), and her three aunts - the motherly Aunt Beth (Sarah Woodward, The Politician's Husband), the rebellious Aunt Cat (Julie Graham, The Bletchley Circle, Shetland), and the book smart Aunt Jane (Siobhan Redmond, Alfresco) - who are well-known crime writers that help her solve whodunit style murders, as well as set her up on blind dates. In addition to her weekly murder investigations, Mattie is also preoccupied by the fact that her mother Eleanor disappeared without a trace when Mattie was three. The opening two-part mystery, Murder in the Dark, finds the newly promoted DS Matilda Stone dispatched to Hiddledean Hall where all three of her aunts are attending the 15th Wildermarsh Crime Writer's Festival. In a crime as strange as the fiction on display, the prestigious Golden Pick Axe Award has been found buried in the head of a prize nominee, and pages from his latest manuscript have been stolen. Everyone present is a suspect, from the rival nominees - including Matilda's Aunt Beth - to hot headed agents and slimy publishers. Or does the solution to the crime lie in the fictional story that someone has gone to such extreme lengths to hide? Created by Julian Unthank (Doc Martin, New Tricks) and featuring guest star Selina Cadell (Doc Martin).
