The Magician by Goldhil Entertainment
Product Description
Starring: Nigel Havers, Bernard Hepton, Rosemary Leach, Fiona Fullerton, David McKail. Based on the novel Mr. Stimpson & Mr. Gorse by Patrick Hamilton. On the surface Ralph Gorse is a charmer in every sense of the word: handsome, suave and stylish, sparkling company and the possessor of a sexual magnetism that attracts most women h e encounters. But the charm is a veneer. Gorse is a con man and sexual adventurer, whose conquests are merely a way of obtaining his hearts desires: money and power. VOLUME ONE Episode One The Tempter Ralph Gorse, down to his last pennies, meets Joan Plumleigh-Bruce in a roadhouse. She is attracted to Gorse, despite the difference in their ages. But Plumleigh-Bruce has another suitor, the stolid Donald Stimpson, who is attracted by her regular income, her pleasant house and the promise yet unfulfilled of sex. Gorse lures the jealous Stimpson into a sordid night at a pleasure house in a scheme of subtle blackmail. Episode Two The Investor Gorse allies himself with Clarice Mannors fast socialite crowd and continues to fortify his relationship with the romantically-swayed Plumleigh-Bruce with whom he opens a joint bank account for depositing the promised fruits of their future investments. Stimpson casts a jealous and suspicious eye over their financial and romantic liaisons. VOLUME TWO Episode Three The Deceiver Gorse flees to Brighton where he finds employment as a car salesman and begins romancing the innocent and lovely daughter, Pamela, of his boss, Harold Bennett. Stimpsons dogged inquiries have uncovered Gorses whereabouts; and with the swindled Plumleigh-Bruce in tow, he proceeds to Brighton to confront Gorse with the evidence. Episode Four Gorse in the Middle Gorse marries the pregnant Pamela and settles uncomfortably into married life. Bennett, father of the bride, still suspicious of Gorses motives, buys the newlyweds a house. The deed is solely in the brides name, but Gorse has a scheme to turn the tables and collect the insurance. VOLUME THREE Episode Five The Imposter Gorse is drafted for military service, but army life is not his cup of tea. He decides not to return from a brief furlough and checks into a fashionable Brighton seaside hotel where he exchanges identities with a drunken R.A.F. officer. Shortly afterward, a corpse is found on the beach bearing Gorses identity papers. Episode Six Gorse at the End Plumleigh-Bruce and Stimpson are summoned to Brighton to verify the identity of the body bearing Gorses papers. Plumleigh-Bruce cant face the gruesome prospect and flees to their hotel where she bumps into Alison Warren, Gorses latest conquest. Plumleigh-Bruces story confirms Warrens mounting suspicions. She confronts Gorse with the truth and threatens to expose him. Cornered, he takes desperate measures to escape his pursuers.

Last woman to be hanged in Britain lies in an unmarked grave in Amersham - Get Bucks

Donald Stanley tells the story of the last woman to be executed in Britain. On Easter Sunday 1955 Ruth Ellis shot David Blakeley outside a Hampstead public house in what would become a notable legal drama with a celebrated cast. Ruth was born in 1926, left school at 14 and worked as a nightclub hostess. Two of her admirers were Blakely, a racing driver, and Desmond Cussen a former Second World War bomber pilot and director of his family’s tobacco business. Ruth had moved in with Cussen but continued to see Blakeley although their relationship became increasingly bitter and violent. Prosecuting Counsel was Christmas Humphreys a controversial figure in both private and public life. The judge before which Ruth appeared was Mr Justice Havers, grandfather of the actor Nigel Havers. His recommendation to the Home Secretary, Gwilym Lloyd George, younger son of the former Prime Minister, that Ruth should be reprieved for what was a crime passionnel was refused. She was hanged by Albert Pierrepoint who as official hangman executed some 400 people including William Joyce whose propaganda broadcasts from Germany during the Second World War had earned him the nickname ‘Lord Haw-Haw’. Ruth’s execution created a public outcry with which she refused to co-operate. The only happy outcome to the case was that she was the last woman to be executed in Britain before capital punishment was abolished. Ruth’s son of a teenage affair received financial support privately from Havers, her Judge. It had been unusual for Ruth’s remains not to remain within the prison where she was executed and when, following her son Andy’s destruction of her gravestone he too committed suicide, Christmas Humphreys paid for his funeral.
