Tension is high inside the big white tent because it’s time for this year’s bakers to face judgment and elimination. But wait! Stop those timers! Our esteemed judge, Shaw G. Bottom has just been discovered dead in the judge’s tent. The bread round just turned into the dead round.
When Fuddlesborough Football Club take on their rivals Chumley Arthritic in the Cup Final, the match ends with a shocking defeat and an even more shocking murder.
Fuddlesborough’s star player, Giovanni Costalotta, or ‘Italian Balls’ as he was known to his fans, is found dead in the showers.
There is a smear of blood on his cheek and a bar of soap at his feet.
