In this bottle episode the Doyles, with Des present, wake up on Christmas day to find that someone has already opened all of the presents and eaten all of the chocolate oranges. After a quick examination of the house they soon learn that a flash storm has trapped them in the house and that the conditions have likely been like this for some number of hours. For the duration of the storm no one has been or will be able to enter or exit the house.
It doesn't take much time for several competing investigations to get underway. Mal and Rose follow up on a few leads while Tinny and Des also try to get to the bottom of things. Christian and Jake are thus left to work together if they don't want these heinous Christmas crimes pinned on them.
Though only six people were present there are many of leads and plenty of suspects. Will the Doyles, still without their annual feed of turkey, be able to get to the bottom of this case before the storm breaks and the confinement ends?
