Cover Up by R.D. Wingfield
First broadcast on Radio 4 on Saturday Night Theatre on 5th January 1985.
Starring David Sinclair as a demoted ex-Inspector, making things awkward for former colleagues who now need his help, "Cover Up" is a gritty tale of bank robbery and police corruption which the Independent considered probably "Wingfield's finest feature-length play".
R.D.Wingfield was for twenty years a stalwart of BBC radio drama, producing a steady stream of intelligent mystery plays with a built-in guarantee of enjoyment for the listener. He is, of course, famous now as the creator of Inspector Jack Frost, reaching a wide audience through his Frost novels and a spin-off TV series with David Jason starring; but it was on radio that he honed his skills, and even the celebrated Frost made his bow on the air.
All Wingfield's plays are clever, with sharp dialogue, clear-cut characters and intriguing action. He hooked his listeners quickly and efficiently and then proceeded to lead them up the garden. His plays are full of tricks and surprises, clever twists and unexpected developments. Sometimes the biter is bitten; sometimes black appears white; often the denouement stands everything else on its head. Certain themes recur: missing money, insurance fraud, bomb disposal; but Wingfield always has something up his sleeve and he never repeats himself.
