A young novelist falls for a married blond beauty. She's too afraid to leave her thuggish husband and the idea of "accidental" death comes up. The writer doesn't go through with it and they break off. However, she's not done with him yet.
After Adam inherits a country house from his great uncle, he and his friend Rufus decide to spend the summer there instead of abroad. An odd assortment of 'house guests' turns up through different means and it's an uneasy mix at best. A decade afterwards, the bodies of a young woman and an infant are discovered in the woods behind the house. As the police investigate, they naturally look to Adam as former owner of the house, and what happened all those years before starts to catch up with him. Written by

Adam's playing lord of the manor, he just sacked the gardener.
Well I don't think he should have let him go! You have to keep this house up, cherish it for your great-uncle's sake.
Oh yes, please! I would like to become a member of the Grown-Ups Club, please rush me a subscription form and a prospectus for a musty afterlife.

I looked for this for a long time, as I could only remember the plot, and none of the authors or writer...and I only realised after I recognised Douglas Hodge when he was in the Caretaker on stage, that i got my lead...
This was an excellently atmospheric dramatatisation about indulgence, abuse, decay and guilt and the past catching up. It was wonderfully scripted and acted...and there was something really chilling about that house and those grounds...
I remember watching this when i was nine, wrapped in a blanket on cold winter's nights..and it gave me nightmares for weeks afterwards...but i didnt mind that....
