As before, Ms French adopts six widely different guises in stories of lust, robbery, food and every conceivable type of murder.
In the first story, Steven Moffat's Overkill, French plays Tina, a woman at the end of her tether. During a suicide attempt, Tina finds an international hit woman (Amanda Donohoe) climbing through her bathroom window, planning to bump off a nearby businessman. With Peter Vaughan and Colin Salmon.
