Tonight | Shakespeare and Hathaway on ABC TV – The launch of Arden’s revamped Christmas Festival, Wintermas, doesn’t go to plan when Council Leader Elaine Davies (Angela Lonsdale) receives a message from the ‘Voice in the Dark’ telling her to cancel the event or face public humiliation.

Frank (Mark Benton) and Lu (Jo Joyner) investigate and discover tensions boiling over within the council. Tensions are also rising between Frank and Lu after a misunderstanding and Seb (Patrick Walshe McBride) is given his first solo case. But nothing could have prepared him to meet Rob (Steve Edge), aka Mr Christmas, who celebrates Christmas day every day with his daughter, Olivia (Niamh Longford).

Seb gets off on the wrong foot when he upsets Olivia, accuses the neighbour, Matt (Jonny Muir), and then gets himself taken prisoner. But when it becomes apparent the two cases might be linked, can he turn it around and prove himself in time to save Christmas?
