Nigel Havers is the suave and deadly Ralph Ernest Gorse, a.k.a. The Charmer - minor public schoolboy, social climber, seducer of women and eternal seeker after the main chance; his stalking grounds are the roadhouses, boarding rooms and grand seaside hotels of the 1930's, the haunts of vulnerable widows and ambitious swindlers. Gorse is no English hero in the traditional sense of the word. He is a psychopath with the plausible charm of every mother's son, a Lothario whose conquests are merely a means to obtaining what he really craves - money and power.

Charmer is the eighth studio album by singer-songwriter Aimee Mann, released by SuperEgo Records on September 18, 2012 (see 2012 in music). The album was produced by Mann's bassist, Paul Bryan, and features a guest appearance by The Shins frontman James Mercer, who duets with Mann on the track “Living a Lie.” It debuted on the Billboard 200 at #33. Laura Linney and John Hodgman star in the music video for the first single, “Charmer.” The video for the second single, “Labrador,” is a shot-for-shot remake of the video for “Voices Carry,” the 1985 hit of Mann's former band, 'Til Tuesday, with the exception of Town Hall replacing Carnegie Hall.
