Sad tale of a wealth woman and younger man
20 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On the title page of each episode in this series there appears an icon representing the episode - in this case it's crossed fencing swords. Mrs. Pollard, a wealthy widow, tells March of her brief fling with a young Frenchman. She was much in love with him but after a few weeks, the cad dumps her, taking all of her expensive jewelry with him. She learned that he is a member of the French fencing team and is now in London to compete in a tournament. The best part of this episode is when March treats Mrs. Pollard in such an avuncular and compassionate manner. Very well done indeed. Sadly, Mrs. Pollard is later found dead and Inspector Goron of the Surete comes to London to assist in the investigation. Eric Pohlmann as Goron has some good scenes exhibiting a dry sense of humor. We learn that March is a fencing expert, an expertise that allows him to find the culprit. Another entertaining episode but the last half was a little draggy.
