To make matters worse, Mr. Grumble’s popularity is threatened by two adversaries; rising star Trevor Marlow, who is out to steal his celebrity crown and by the mysterious and charismatic circus owner, Dr Uri Shevanko. Mr. Grumble is a sad and lonely man and worse is yet to come as he heads for a fall so great he will become a national hate figure!
