Storyline

Christopher Jefferies, a semi-retired teacher in his mid-sixties, owns a house in Bristol and lets rooms to tenants. Though on several committees and with friends he is considered an eccentric, esoteric figure with his long grey hair and old-fashioned ways. In December 2010 tenant Greg Reardon reports his partner Jo Yeates missing and the police visit Chris. When Jo's corpse is found on Christmas Eve Chris is beset by reporters to whom he reacts pedantically and some days later he is arrested for Jo's murder. He is subjected to trial by media as the gutter press term him 'lewd', 'creepy' and the Nutty Professor despite his lawyer Paul Okebu securing his release whilst the school where he used to teach is less than supportive.

Allowing the German Ö to be written as Oe to get Oesterhaven (free translation: Oysterharbour) would lead to a commercial yacht harbour in the province of Zeeland, Netherlands. See more »
