Set to the musicof the period andincorporating true stories ofbrushes with the law, the MoEwill have you gripping theedge of your seat insuspense, hiding behind yoursettee in terror and rolling inthe aisles with laughter.

Ever since the accident, time for Mrs. Gerrish had been at astandstill. For the umpteenth time she flicks through the wellthumbed issue of True Detective that shed found tucked underthe bed in Room 13.To combat her boredom she starts to observe the comings andgoings of her neighbours through the large picture window herJack had put in after Jerry dropped that land mine over the backin 1942. It had landed slap bang on Mr. Mintons garden shedand blew his Hayter Harrier lawn mower clean through her rearwindow.That window had now come into its own as the only relief fromher state of suspended animation where even the hands on herSmiths Electric gold starburst wall clock seemed to have stoppedmoving. Oh, hang on, no its alright, she hadnt plugged it backin after shed done the hoovering last Thursday. Last Thursdaywhen she could nip to Normans for 10 Embassy Regal, lastThursday when she could stand on a wobbly stool wearingnothing but her kitten-heeled house mules, lean out a bit too farto clean the upstairs windows and then find herself staring up atthe sky from the top of the coal bunker with a broken leg and aface full of pink feathers from her duster.So, confined to her wheelchair for the next six weeks, Mrs. G.begins to study, through her binoculars, the private lives of thoseliving around her. Their curious behaviour fascinates her untilone awful evening when she sees something that makes herblood run cold, something that makes the gory murder stories inthe pulp fiction novels she has been reading seem as mild as anEnid Blyton Famous Five adventure
