    Three more exceptionally ripping yarns starring Michael Palin whose enormous acting talents are captured in a variety of remarkable comic character roles.

    The Testing of Eric Olthwaite
    A Ripping Northern Yarn set in the dark days of the depression, before Last of the Summer Wine started bringing jobs to the area. Eric`s tough mining parents find their son so boring that they run away from home. Eric, torn between love for his parents and lack of brain cells, becomes involved with a hardened criminal. The rest is history.

    Whinfrey`s Last Case
    Dashing debonair Gerald Whinfrey saves his country twice a week, but in 1913, a German plot to start the First World War without telling anybody coincides with his holiday. Where do Whinfrey`s priorities lie? Has he got any? A knockout tale of international intrigue. "If only Dickens could write like this", - Mrs Reg Dickens, Eltham.

    The Curse of the Claw
    Gothic terror comes to Maidenhead. A timely reminder of what happens when men dabble in the dark world of oriental superstition. Michael Palin, aided by inexpensive plastic surgery, plays old and young Kevin, as well as Kevin`s childhood hero Uncle Jack - an enormously cheerful physical disaster area who has every disease known to man, usually at the same time.
