Disgraced theatre-critic and poet Ted Wallace is asked to investigate the mystery of so-called miracle healings at Swafford Hall. His natural cynicism makes him the ideal candidate to get to the bottom of what’s going on, as well as a few whisky bottles, in this hilarious tale based on the Stephen Fry novel.
John Jencks (2016) UK 1h 29m
Roger Allam, Russell Tovey, Matthew Modine
