  • A very clever episode - nothing like a good ol' murder!

    9.5
    So Aidensfield gets a murder now! The crime rate for this village must be greater than for New York City now! Anyway this is a superb episode that is my favourite out of season 1. It also has a great twist at the end! I didn't guess for a moment who the murderer might be! Very surprising!



    The Alan-Sandra sub-plot in this episode was quite good. I liked how it continues next episode making this a double episode series finale! That pleased me quite a bit!



    The Greengrass plot also shaped up but it isn't a nice sight seeing his big belly hanging out!



    In summary a very clever episode that any fan of Heartbeat, Midsomer Murders or Inspector Morse should watch! Superb episode!moreless
