The Last Connection

Four random passengers take a trip on the railway. However, they may not be as random as they seem for a deadly secret ties them together and one has just bought a return ticket for nothing. Has Betty Kuddant taken a fatal dare? Has Jockie Klubb ridden roughshod over the wrong person? Is Annette Kirton hiding something terrible? Or has Pastor Kidneys caught the wrong service? Luckily D.I. Bauls is on the same train and will assist you to make the right connection.

'Allo 'Allo - Resistance is Futile

It is wartime and you are all guests at Café René where efforts to smuggle out the British airmen are not going well as the new garrison commander General von Blumerz is making some sweeping changes that are not proving popular with the Resistance. To add to their troubles, there is a serious case of murder to be solved and they are all in it up to their knockwursts!
How long can René keep the contents of his sausage a secret? How long can Yvette keep her hands off him? How long can you keep the cheese in your ears to protect you from Madam Edith’s singing? Answer these questions and more as you join us for a load of fun and frolics in occupied France.
