Meet the cast of Jubilee Terrace, one of the most popular soap operas on British television; from the archaic Lady Wharton to hot young thing Dawn Kerridge, the show is a favourite for the whole family.
Recently, however, Vernon Watts, aka Bert Porter died suddenly. Terrible as his death was, it wasn’t without its benefits, and those in the production team were quick to fill vacant spots in the soap’s scripts; bringing back an old character for a major plotline. The notorious Cyril Wharton, played by the equally infamous Hamish Fawley, is all set to return, despite the disapproval of the remaining cast.
But when a suspicious letter emerges raising questions about Vernon’s supposed ‘natural death’ and an arson attack kills two more of the cast, it would appear something more sinister is afoot. The script-writers are clearly not the only ones capable of killing off characters…
