Episode 4: Dead Beat - Part Two

Summary

Part two of two. Peregrine convinces Eric to come clean about a past crime that will clear his name for the murders, and Violetta's hidden musical talents put her and Peregrine in grave danger. Geraldine Hakewill stars.

Review

The men are hilariously ineffectual in these 1960s-set whodunnits. Steed has as much life in him as a Ken doll, his boss Chief Inspector Sparrow is downright vile, while Eric exists just to be shot at. No, if you want a job done properly, you need to get the women – namely, the Adventuresses’ Club, as they’re known here.

The conclusion to the current case sees our heroes infiltrate the music show that has been the scene of a murder. But before we reach the solution, Peregrine sneaks around backstage (wearing an inconspicuous pink mini-dress and matching alice band). As she hunts for clues, the gimlet-eyed among you may spot some Beatles lookalikes and a homage to the Singing Nun.
