Mystery & Suspense • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Chief Inspector Coleridge is called in to investigate a murder that occurs among the cast of "House Arrest," a reality TV show on the BBC. Thorpe reads Elton's funny parody of this medium and its vain, ambitious contestants in an enthusiastic, rapid-fire style. He makes crusty, crotchety Coleridge even more so and characterizes the 10 house members as ridiculous by emphasizing their vapid slang and bad grammar. Thorpe shifts tone deftly to make Jazz, Layla, Hamish, Dervla, Moon, et al. unique and identifiable. Pacing and diction are impeccable. This popular entertainment should appeal to Generation X.
