When disgraced theatre-critic and poet, Ted Wallace, is fired from his job, he is asked to investigate the mystery of so-called miracle healings at Swafford Hall, where he is godfather to youngest child, David. His natural cynicism makes him the ideal candidate to get to the bottom of what’s going on, as well as some good whisky bottles, in this hilarious tale based on Stephen Fry’s seminal novel.
