  • Summer and a locked-room mystery for D.C. Davies

    7.6
    It's high summer in Willesden North and everyone is staying as close as they can to their electric fans. When a rich man playing at being a painter is burned to death in his studio, Davies' co-workers tell him "It's a locked-door mystery. Right up your street!" But Davies is an intelligent man, and even in the sweltering heat he is able to put the pieces of the puzzle together.



    The whole episode is full of the ambience of those old film noir movies. It's hot like it is in the old movies (nobody has air conditioning), and the dead man's widow is very much in the style of the Hollywood femme fatale, her impenetrable facade reflecting all the investigator's questions.



    If you can imagine the Kathleen Turner movie "Body Heat" set in north London, you'll have some idea of the atmosphere of this stylish episode
