Great cast in a rather pointless tale
26 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

An underpaid schoolteacher (Charles Dance) gets a new job as the private tutor of a bright, attractive 19-year-old-girl (Amanda Root), the daughter of a very rich couple (Trevor Howard and Claire Bloom). Tensions arise, however, when the "black sheep" of the family, the son, returns home with his pregnant wife.

The fourth episode of the "Time For Murder" series has the most distinguished cast so far, and they all give fine performances (Claire Bloom, in her mid-50s, is tres elegant), and the flashback structure in interesting (we don't even know who's dead until two thirds of the way through), but when everything is revealed, the whole story seems kind of pointless. It's still definitely better than "Mister Clay, Mister Clay", though. ** out of 4.
