Cleaning Up is an excellent short film by Simon and Thomas Guerrier  which stars Mark Gatiss (The League of Gentlemen, Sherlock) as a slick hitman and Louise Jameson (Doctor Who, Doc Martin) as a seemingly harmless and flirty B&B proprietor. After winning awards all over the shop, funds are now being sought to turn this stylish short thriller into a stylish feature thriller. And you can help by purchasing said short film for a small fee.

Discerning readers of New Empress Magazine: you may have encountered this short film in the company of our charming Editor-in-chief Helen Cox and the talented Guerrier brothers themselves, as Cleaning Up featured as an attraction at one of our Film and Quiz nights last year. So if you saw it last year with us or want to see it this year, the film may be purchased from production company Big Finish ( ) in a standard or special edition as below;

£1.99 ROOKIE – the film
