Someone’s getting married. Someone’s getting murdered.

In a dark, dark wood

There was a dark, dark house

Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s hen do arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her?

And in the dark, dark house there was a dark, dark room

And in the dark, dark room….
