Storyline

When Alex Loding passes Brat Farrar in the street, he's struck by Brat's uncanny resemblance to Simon Ashby. Simon had a older twin brother, Patrick, who disappeared a decade ago, and was presumed drowned. Simon now owns the family farm, Latchetts, a top-notch stable. Alex asks Brat, who loves horses, if he'd care to impersonate Patrick to disinherit Simon. But as Brat grows closer to the Ashby family, he finds the role a dangerous and wearing one; especially as he begins to suspect that Patrick's death wasn't an accident. Written by Kathy Li

Classic outstanding British mystery/drama
23 June 2002 | by (Washington State, USA) – See all my reviews

Our family was fortunate to have taped this off the TV broadcast many years ago when A & E still aired these excellent British series. We have watched it many times and invariably find it wonderful. The cast is uniformly outstanding, the characterizations are subtle and multi-layered, and although we know the outcome by now, it is still very suspenseful.

I can't imagine why this hasn't been released in video format, and I wish PBS or A & E would air this Josephine Tey classic mystery again.
