The Tory Vanishes [Original British Drama]

In view of the latest craze to have a railway theme in most programmes I have come up with a story line which involves a colourful conservative politician who finds a magic railway guide in an old arch at Kings Cross. This book transports him back to 1930,s central Europe where he is pursued by evil agents on board a cross continental train heading back to England. A man in a black fedora and caped raincoat is one of the leaders of this conspiracy, ghostly ethereal people, who live in the shadows and only appear in times of political gain.

These men capture our hero and bind him in bandages to stop him talking and to hide the outrageous colours of his clothes. But they have been seen, two gallant school boys George and Dave witnessed the whole incident as the elderly politico is dragged away and so they swear an oath to save this stalwart of the conservative party.

First of all they dash of to see their friend Boris and explain the situation. Boris listens intently to this adventure story but deep down inside he doesn’t really believe anything George and Dave tell him as they always end up being caught out, saying things were just made up but he agrees to go along with them to see the teacher in charge. They find Dame May in the restaurant car sipping on a gin and tonic. They gush out their story to her but she has had experience of people who tell tall stories and tells them to go back to their carriage and behave, didn’t they have any homework to do.

After many adventures in which they prove they are right and beat down the man in the black fedora who keeps trying to prove them wrong and the whisperers in the background. After all this, the colourful conservative is rescued and brought back to England and is given a huge contract with the BBC and it all ends happy ever after.

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
