Careless Talk Costs Lives

Synopsis:
It is October 1940 and we are at an event organised by the WVS to raise money to fill Red Cross parcels for British servicemen who have been captured and are now Prisoners Of War. During the first of the speeches a very unpopular conscientious objector who has been making money out of the war is murdered but who did the deed? Was it the man from MI9; or the local sergeant expecting to be awarded a DSO; the boffin inventing things to help escapees; the private with shell-shock who cannot speak; his mother who talks for him; the lady from Bletchley Park or the woman with a foreign name and a strange accent (Geordie). The audience are presented with the forensic evidence and will question the suspects but can they unmask the murderer?

St Victor's Hospital has been selected to be featured on the popular television series Life Saving Hands. the Head of Surgery, Mr Horace Kutter is looking forward to the opportunity to display his operating techniques on the small screen when, just as the film crew are about to arrive he has an accident involving a bedpan and becomes unavailable. at the same time Department of Health Inspectors arrive to carry out a surprise inspection under the management of the formidable Miss Cowgate. It is well known throughout the Health sector that the Television company don't like the health inspectors and vice versa. the Junior Doctor is persuaded to impersonate Dr Kutter for the television production company while a patient does him for the inspectors. at one time there are five "Kutters" on stage. But Miss Cowgate has other plans. She intends that her team deliver a damning inspection report that will lead to closure because a company with whom she is involved has an option on the site to build houses and make a mint. Thank heavens for the NHS that she is unmasked in the final scene and the hospital can continue medicating the patients Three times a day after Meals.
