The Last Detective: Three Steps To Hendon Trailer


Back in the 1970s, The Overnite Sensations topped the pop charts with their smash single, "Yesterday's Boy." Ironically, the song's title aptly describes the fading fame of the group's lead singer, Teddy O'Connor, just before his murder. Interviewing Teddy's former band mates and hangers-on, Davies discovers the dark underside of glam rock.
