Storyline

The drama opens in a fairy-tale atmosphere of little girls in white dresses and flower wreaths skipping through the woods in an English country village. The fairy tale turns nightmare when one girl meets an unfortunate end and a mysterious stranger checks into the bed and breakfast run by Ben Turner and his wife Natalie. Threatening letters follow, and the ensuing investigation turns up more than a few surprises. Written by Bye

Who dunnit or Why dunnit?
27 October 1999 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

Tight script, good direction, excellent performances, strong cast, effective use of locations....

Paul McGann gives a detailed, subtle performance as the man in the centre of a new murder investigation who may just have committed a similar murder previously.

There is an interesting moral & emotional journey happening with his character (Ben Turner) and it intersects with the journey undertaken by Amanda Burton. Inevitably they cross over... Who has done what?

The examination of WHY, both in the past and in the present, rather than WHO might have yielded a more interesting, Dostoyevskian story, but hey, who's complaining?
