Episode Summary

Deadly Disco
A local landowner comes up with a predictably unpopular scheme for filling in the Arlington village pond to build a night club on the site. The "Stop the Disco!" action group is due to see the villain of the piece at the Grange to confront him with its objections, but of course there is a fatal turn of events... and (as usual) it turns out that there were other possible motives for the killing.moreless

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Colonel Mustard: (his confession) That damned disco was going to ruin me. I had a cash-flow crisis and my accountant said the only way to save my business was by selling up and moving to a cheaper house. Mr Hall had sent the value of my house through the floor. I didn't know what to do. I did know that I... the last thing I wanted was to sit in a room with that man. So I made my excuses but when it came to it I couldn't just sit by not knowing how it was going, so I drove over and went and listened at the window. I suppose I knew what I had to do the moment I heard Plum say that Mrs Peacock wouldn't be able to buy the land. There was only one way to save the village and my business. I sneaked inside and hid in the dining room. I was on the other side of the door when the rat was blackmailing Vivienne. It just made it easier. When they'd gone, I went to listen at the study door. I was almost caught twice, by Mrs White when she went by and when my phone went off. After Mrs Peacock went by, I waited for Hall to come out of the study. I got him to come into the dining room, I picked up the statuette and then I... I... When he was dead, I left by the window. Then it was easy, I just wandered round to the front door. I would have got away with it. I should have. It's not fair.

      • Mrs White: (to James Bellini) Thank you, Mr Baloney.

      • Professor Plum: (to Anna) And I just want to say that I will never watch your show again!

      • Miss Scarlett: I had an affair with Mr Hall.
        Mrs Peacock: Oh, not another one?
        Professor Plum: Is there anyone you haven't had an affair with?
        Miss Scarlett: You! And I wouldn't dream of it, either!
