A great Murder Mystery
9 August 2002 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

This movie, one which is part of The Diagnosis Murder series, is a well acted murder mystery. Unlike some episodes of Diagnosis Murder,It doesnt show the viewers who the Murderer is and then show how the Doctors solve the murder, it is writeen so we're just as puzzled as the characters, meaning everyone is always trying to think who it might be. A great movie, I give it 8 out of Ten.
