Average Stuff And Don't Watch The American Print, 12 September 2013
Author: Theo Robertson from Isle Of Bute, Scotland

A serial killer targeting young women is on the prowl . Head librarian Liz Morris sees her colleague Gillie Randall in the company of a man . The next day the normally reliable Gillie fails to appear for work and the library staff start fearing the worst especially Liz who worries that she's a witness to a crime

This is basically a whodunit and it's left to the audience to make up their own minds as to who the murderer is . Apparently however this might not be the case if you've seen the American prints which let the cat out of the bag as to who the serial killer is . What makes the episode stand out slightly is the amount of people in the cast who were or would find relative fame for their comedy roles and to be fair the cast are mainly efficient . The story itself isn't bad but like so many other type of stories in this genre is a bit too formulaic with red herrings , false leads and surprise plot twists and once you know who the murderer is doesn't lend itself to repeat viewings
