Storyline

Gwenda Halliday moves to England from India and moves into a house in a seaside village. She will soon be married and needs to renovate the house first. However, she keeps getting the strange feeling that she's been in the house before even though, as far as she is aware, she has never been in England before. Then a view of a part of the house sparks an image of a murder in her mind, and she gets extremely agitated. Her assistant, Hugh Hornbeam, is worried about her and calls in a friend, Miss Marple. It turns out Ms Halliday has previously lived in England, in that same house. Written by grantss

Goofs

During one of the flashbacks of the Funnybones performances, Edith plays a famous tune called "Sabre Dance" on the xylophone. However this would be impossible since the song was not composed until the 1940's and the flashbacks are said to be in 1934. See more »

Intriguing and engaging mystery

Gwenda Halliday moves to England from India and moves into a house in a seaside village. She will soon be married and needs to renovate the house first. However, she keeps getting the strange feeling that she's been in the house before even though, as far as she is aware, she has never been in England before. Then a view of a part of the house sparks an image of a murder in her mind, and she gets extremely agitated. Her assistant, Hugh Hornbeam, is worried about her and calls in a friend, Miss Marple. It turns out Ms Halliday has previously lived in England, in that same house.

Quite intriguing, especially as the mystery involves a potential murder committed nearly 20 years previously. "Potential" because we don't even know if there was a murder, adding to the intrigue.

Quite engaging too. We have some interesting relationship drama and the plight and backstory of Gwenda is quite engaging. Some colourful characters too and a touch of romance.

Great cast, with some big names: Paul McGann, Dawn French, Geraldine Chaplin and Martin Kemp (of Spandau Ballet fame). The standout for me is the gorgeous Sophia Myles, who plays Gwenda.
