Storyline

Helen West is a crown prosecutor who cares about people in the criminal justice system and seeks to ensure that justice is done. She has a particular interest in women's issues and has to put up with her somewhat odd superior and his cleanliness phobia. She recognizes that it's the role of the police to find the evidence but also feels it warranted to occasionally investigate matters herself. Unmarried, she is also in a relationship with Chief Supt. Bailey, though neither seem to be able to make up their minds about their futures or what they want to get out of life. Written by garykmcd

First entry in the new series, "Deep Sleep" gives Helen an interesting case.
20 June 2002 | by (Jacksonville, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Here's an interesting crime story about a pharmacist with a lustful eye on his young apprentice after his wife dies of an apparent heart attack. Helen West, recovering from an operation, has her hackles raised by the whole situation and sets out hot on the trail when chloroform is found in the wife's blood. The pharmacist is a suspect, naturally, but there are others as well. Purists in the mystery genre may think that the love affair of Helen and Chief Inspector Bailey is overly obtrusive. Add to that some of the worst TV movie editing yet and you have room to cavil. The acting is pretty good, especially Amanda Burton as Helen, and the London backgrounds are well photographed. I rate it 7/10.
