“Shoestring” was a very popular BBC series about a down-at-heel detective, Eddie Shoestring, played by Trevor Eve.

“The Mayfly Dance” concerns an elusive former band member, Jody Brent. Michael Gothard plays Harry, who was in the same band, but has now become a farmer. He gives Eddie Shoestring an idea of where Jody can be found, so that the truth about a death can be revealed.

Robert Banks Stewart, the producer of “Shoestring”, would have been familiar with Michael’s work, having been one of the writers on “Arthur of the Britons.”
