Shakespeare & Hathaway – Private Investigators: Die We Must (S4EP6 BBC One Mon 21 Feb 2022)



Die We Mus: Frank (Mark Benton) and Lu (Jo Joyner) are hired to look for a missing manuscript from dystopian sci-fi author Greg Alban (Clive Russell).

An avid Alban fan, Frank is keen to take the case. Arriving at the reclusive writer’s mansion, it becomes clear this was an inside job.

All eyes turn to the staff who work at the property: security guard Carl (Tayla Kovacevic-Ebong), eccentric accountant Max (Daniel Tuite), housekeeper Dierdre (Zoe Matthews) and Greg’s loyal right-hand man, Don (Christopher Fairbank).

Frank soon realises why you should never meet your heroes; Greg is found dead and any of the staff who were all mistreated by him could be responsible.

Can the PIs reveal the culprit and trace the manuscript, while the killer walks amongst them?

Season 4 Episode 6

Frank Hathaway, a hardboiled private investigator, and his rookie sidekick Lu Shakespeare form the unlikeliest of partnerships as they investigate the secrets of rural Warwickshire’s residents.

Beneath the picturesque charm lies a hotbed of mystery and intrigue: extramarital affairs, celebrity stalkers, missing police informants, care home saboteurs, rural rednecks and murderous magicians, embezzling accountants and abducted au pairs, blackmail, comp claims and custody cases, all-night stake-outs and professional hits. Our odd couple of detectives will put the world to rights as they snoop and pry. They disagree on almost everything, yet somehow, together, they make a surprisingly effective team. Although they would never admit it.
