SynopsisFor Alan, the memories of hospitalisation after World War II are more real than his current stay in hospital, to the distress of his family, but his flashbacks eventually explain the loss of his closest friendship.

SynopsisLord Arthur gets himself in a tangle, postponing his wedding to Sybil so as to concentrate on his plot to murder his rich aunt from whom he is to inherit the family fortune. Unfortunately, his aunt dies a natural death, and Lord Arthur must again postpone his wedding, not least so that he can retrieve the poison capsule he had intended for his aunt. His inept murderous career continues with yet another wedding postponement for his ultimately and inevitably failed attempt to construct an exploding carriage clock to get rid of the Dean of Chichester. Of course, there's a happy ending, but which would you prefer - a murder, or a wedding?
