Dead of Night
Jack has just been acquitted of manslaughter after a court trial. Delighted, Jack regales his live-in girlfriend Maggie and their neighbours Dennis and Lynne with a vivid account of the details. According to the evidence (most of it Jack's) the victim, Philip Mercer, had broken in late at night on being confronted by Jack he produced a gun. During a struggle Jack got hold of the gun and used it to kill Mercer. This must surely be a clear case of self-defence. Or was it? Mercer's outraged family doesn't think so, and are rumoured to be outside waiting for a crack at Jack. As the action unfolds, Maggie, Lynne and Dennis also begin to have their doubts about what really happened.
