  • Another episode with great acting and an interesting story.

    9.1
    This episode has an interesting storyline about family histories and some of the myths around Christmas. Haydn Gwynne provides a solid performance as Jennifer, a family member who still lives in the old home, and who tries to bring the family closer together again. Margery Mason is very adept at playing the elderly Aunt Lydia who seems to be losing her marbles but who is actually quite lucid. Rory Copus almost steals the show as the character of the young boy(Howard) who has inherited a great interest in magic tricks from his late Uncle Ferdy. He shows his skills in responding to the police during an interview, and provides a sense of humour throughout. Bruce Alexander is very smooth as Dominic, Lydia's bridge partner who is invited to share in the holiday festivities. Barnaby's father-in-law Douglas provides a good source of humour when he arrives for Christmas with a Monopoly set and a metal detector.
