1930s, England. The elderly dowager is fading fast, although perhaps not fast enouhg for some. Her family have gathered at the family seat and await her final departure. As the bodies begin to pile up who is to blame: the doting daughter, her husband, the disenfranchised 'other' daughter, the companion looking to travel the world, or the butler and housekeeper sick of service? And who on earth is the mystery Doctor, summoned by the dowager herself?
