Who Killed Santa Claus?

Who Killed Santa Claus?
Written by Terence Feely
Directed by Keith Reynolds
13 – 16 March 1974

Barbara Love is a famous TV star who, just before her Christmas party, is threatened by a chilling voice on her answering machine and then receives a macabre present boxed in a miniature coffin. Not so much a ‘whodunnit’ but more a ‘who’s going to do it’, as along troop the staff of her television show for the Christmas buffet, each one of them with a motive to murder her. The tension mounts as this cunningly plotted thriller twists and turns towards the final spine-tingling revelation.
