Surely a Challenge to Keep Track of, but Worth It, 16 February 2016
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

I was a bit bored at the beginning of this episode, but it was worth hanging on for the developments. What starts out as a simple case of vandalism (the cutting up of a valuable portrait from a past century) develops into a case of anger and revenge. There are numerous characters from a woman who says she can get vibrations from the graves of people, including one who is buried right in the middle of a museum, to another, who begins to see spirits and who begins to doubt her sanity. This is a simple view of what takes place and there are numerous layers at work here. People are close mouthed about their involvements with one another, but we can see incredible tensions. The museum is at the center of everything. But there are some far more basic issues warranting investigation. Money and jealousy are often at the center of things and this is no exception to that. Some have criticized the supernatural implications of this offering, but Barnaby's clashing with his usual rational approach makes that just fine.
