Two telly favourites, Adam Woodyatt (EastEnders) and Gaynor Faye (Coronation Street, Emmerdale), unite in Looking Good Dead, a modern-day thriller by best selling author Peter James at the Theatre Royal Norwich this week.

Both have very natural acting styles, as comes with a career in soapland, and are convincing as the bickering married couple who you think, ultimately, love each other dearly despite problems cropping up time and time again.

But this is a modern day Agatha Christie with nothing quite as it seems. For a start there’s a dodgy memory stick, a shocking video, one dead body closely followed by another and then a kidnap - or three.

The action comes thick and fast and the three police officers - you’ll be familiar with the character of Det Supt Roy Grace from TV adaptations with John Simm in the role - do well to keep up with it all.

So expect plenty of twists and turns in this rather chilling tale, with its clever set and creepy music all helping to set you on edge.

It’s a perfect show for this time of year and a great one to exercise your Hercule Poirot ‘little grey cells’ to try and work out the ending and, of course, whodunnit.
