Storyline

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 Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

Cracking stuff.
1 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recall very well when this was initially shown on the Beeb in May of '92. I video'd it at the time & have retained it ever since. As well as the performances being first rate, by a young cast, it was the incidental score by David Ferguson that I found most haunting. His music for the likes of 'Moondial,' 'Cracker' & more I consider to be unsurpassed by any other of his ilk during the late 80's & early/mid 90's. However, this somewhat under-rated 3 part thriller deserves a singular DVD release, methinks, rather than it being thrown into a box-set with other lesser TV versions of Rendell's work. It's no 'Singing Detective' but it's still great. So there.
