The worst crime in this episode is the terrible mulberry-coloured three-piece trouser suit worn by a chippy, unimaginative female detective chief inspector (played by Claire Goose).
She’s investigating the murder of an amateur sleuth and blogger, a librarian with a passion for unsolved crimes. It turns out she was also a friend of Danny’s, who makes it his mission to find out why she was killed. This leads him to Paddington Station and a trip into the countryside, to look again at the 1990 murder of a young woman.
Though not up to the standard of recent, absorbing
stories (the old dog has taken on a new lease of life), it’s still good to see yet more of Nicholas Lyndhurst as the calm, deliberate Danny.
An elderly amateur sleuth who was a friend of Danny's is murdered, and he ends up embroiled in the case when his photo is found at the scene. However, the cold case copper becomes convinced that the secret to uncovering her real killer lies within the last case she was working on. Picking up where she left off, he travels to the village of Minchampton, where a woman was said to have been murdered by a local lad 25 years previously. Meanwhile, Sasha is left to cope with the investigating officer on the modern-day Miss Marple's murder - an overbearing contemporary from her Hendon training, by the name of DCI Grace Mackie - and Steve lets Gerry stay with him when he is evicted, but soon comes to regret the act of kindness.
