[Gerard Etienne's body has been discovered]
Mr Etienne took over the firm fairly recently. Would you say that he was well liked?
[Mrs Demery looks quizzically at him]
Well, he wouldn't have been carried out of here in a body bag if he'd been a little ray of sunshine, now would he, Commander?

"Original Sin" is an almost 3 hour British t.v. miniseries "old school" mystery which centers on a murder at a waterfront publishing firm, numerous clues, and equally numerous suspects with the inscrutable Commander Dalgliesh (Marsden) and his trusty sidekicks hot on the trail. A rather convoluted mess of a story which is not particularly engaging given its length, viewers may find the conclusion to be too little too late. Recommended for those who have viewed the other films in this series, preferably in chronological order. Those unfamiliar with P.D. James' novels or this series of films should begin with the oldest first and work forward from there. The DVD I watched had no subtitles or CC and I did have some trouble with the audio and the dialects. (C+)
