Gold’s feature-length comedic murder mystery Murder On The Blackpool Express will premiere on Saturday November 11th at 9:30pm, it has been announced.
Murder On The Blackpool Express follows Terry, the despondent driver of the coach who’s stuck in a rut. He has no goal or passions, apart from an unrequited love interest in tour organiser, Gemma. But everything changes when an OAP dies under suspicious circumstances and Terry suspects something sinister is afoot. Soon the number of passengers has seriously dwindled and Terry feels compelled to solve the mystery and save Gemma’s business; hopefully winning her love in the process.
