Sinister glimpse of a vanished London
29 August 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If you are a Londoner, you will enjoy the glimpses of London as it used to be. Swirling fog, and buildings covered with Victorian-era soot. Little cafes with hand-painted signs. Warehouses and working docks. London was emptier then, too.

This is a particularly good episode. A handsome but scarred man, Bosker, steals a diamond necklace and then disappears. He is tracked to a sinister hotel in Gower Street (there are still hotels there, but they're quite respectable now). It's dimly lit, and hasn't had a facelift since the reign of Edward VII. It is run by the gravelly voiced Madame Linger, a handsome woman of about 50. Bosker's girlfriend wants to know where he is.

As things fall out, the detective must fly to Amsterdam, where he meets a rather over friendly Dutch colleague and a Dutch couple (much of the interrogation takes place in that language).

But then everybody disappears. The Dutch couple fly to London, where Bosker's girlfriend has flitted, leaving nothing but a bleach mark on the carpet of her bedroom...

Meanwhile the hotel's oven is kept busy - baking croissants. Was this based on a real case? Did such grim goings-on ever transpire next to the British Museum?
