Having been unsuccessful in solving their most recent case, Tommy and Tuppence find themselves trying to solve the murder of Gilda Glenn, a well-known stage actress. She was known to have entered a local house but the occupants have sound explanations for where they were at the time of the killing and the local policeman was keeping a close eye on the house, as the owner was afraid of burglars. When Tommy's wartime pal Bulger Estcourt is arrested, Tommy decides to stage a re-creation. Written by garykmcd

Perhaps the worst Agatha Christie treatment ever
30 October 2007 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

The only reason that I watch any of the "Tommy and Tuppence" series is because Francesca Annis is so damned charming. Otherwise, this episode in particular, is likely the worst treatment of any Agatha Christie text ever. Just when you think that a high school drama class defines the bottom end of theatrical treatments, I defy you to say this is any better. Cheesy fake Irish accents? Check. Hugely over-the-top scenery-chewing? Gotcha. Painfully irritating minor characters? We've got 'em in spades. Logic? Right out the flippin' window, of course. The most clichéed dialog imaginable? Will you stop asking obvious questions?! I'll cut to the chase: avoid this episode at any cost.
