This episode of "Colonel March Investigates" starts with the rather strange premise of a love triangle of sorts in which one of the points -- a man probably about to be divorced -- is recently divorced but remains relevant through Spiritualist communication.

This could easily become silly but is played absolutely straight and not without emotion, benefiting from good performances all round. One could easily believe that an event like this could have such an effect on a young woman with such an investment in Spiritualism.

Colonel March is given a personal investment as a reason to get involved, as the woman involved is his niece, and his trickery at the end to solve the case is clever. However, the "let me explain my evil plot" ending and very quick resolution were rather unsatisfying. On the whole though, quite a good episode.
