Episode Summary

EDIT
Strong Poison, Part 1
AIRED:
Harriet Vane, a crime writer, is charged with poisoning Philip Boyes, her former lover, with arsenic. The evidence against her seems overwhelming, but it is all circumstantial. The jury is divided and a new trial is ordered, to begin in four weeks' time. Wimsey visits Harriet, finds himself falling in love with her, and sets out to clear her name. If Harriet Vane is not the killer, who is, and how was the poison administered? Wimsey quickly decides that Harriet has been framed by a fiendishly clever murderer - who has to be outwitted.moreless

      • Lord Peter Wimsey: Bunter, launch the Lagonda!

      • Lord Peter Wimsey: (visiting Harriet Vane in prison) I'll call again, if I may?
        Harriet Vane: I'll give the footman orders to admit you. You will always find me at home.

      • Lord Peter Wimsey: Miss Climpson, why do people kille people?
        Miss Climpson: I don't know. It's so dangerous as well as so cleverly wicked. I wonder how anybody has the effrontery to undertake it.

      • Lord Peter Wimsey: (the end of a long list of favours he asks of Parker) Find out if any bottle or paper that might have contained arsenic was picked up in that district.
        Chief Inspector Parker: Oh, is that all? Well, perhaps you'd also like me to trace the bus ticket dropped by Mrs. Brown outside Selfridge's in the last Christmas rush?
        Lord Peter Wimsey: My dear Parker, I would not dream of patronizing an officer of your callibre by setting him such a simple problem.
