A mysterious man sends in a question to the BBC panel show 'Twenty Questions' before he commits a murder; he then sends the four players clues which are read out live on the air and the film chronicles the endeavors of the panelists to solve a real murder. It's great to see a number of celebrities play themselves as members of the Twenty Questions panel.

The "Diary Murders" are the talk of London. Two men have been found murdered with a torn diary page found at the scene of each crime. The diary belongs to Lilian Hope, a silent film star who recently died in poverty. Scotland Yard suspect the killer is avenging Lilian by murdering those who betrayed her in life.
