Murder Mystery Evening
As baking fever hits the country, the village fete organisers in the usually sleepy village of Crabblebottom are delighted when celebrity chef Eduardo D’Angelo takes up residence in the village and agrees to judge the annual cake baking competition. But this year there is a change of plan, as the bake-off turns into a bump-off.
Major Gordon Watt - an older gentleman, a bit absent minded and deaf at times. He is a well-presented ex-army officer who heads up the Fete committee.
Philip Stanton - member of the Fete committee, married to Hilary. He is quite outgoing and loud at times, but devoted to his wife.
Hilary Stanton - member of the committee. Ardent baker and determined to succeed in her own business to prove she doesn’t live in her husband’s shadow.
Patricia McLaren - current judge of the cake competition and member of the committee. She is generally not liked in the village, but has lots of influence. Always well dressed and groomed.
Eduardo D’Angelo - Celebrity chef who has recently moved to the village. He has a persona that comes across as a bit of a ladies man and a charmer in front of his fans/an audience/in public. But he has a hidden past.
Caroline Fountain - one of the bakers. A traditional type and has lived in the village for a long time. Generally well liked, and a huge fan of Eduardo D’Angelo.
Sarah Mead - a bit new-age in appearance. She is treated with some suspicion by some of the villagers after the disappearance of her husband.
Detective Sam Nelson - investigating officer who happens to be at the Fete. (The character can be male or female).
Sophie - villager and baker.
Maisie - villager and baker.
