Bullies Never Change!!
23 February 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In 1975 a young boy, Andrew, is mercilessly bullied by an older boy at the local comprehensive. His mother is a career woman so his father handles everything, including complaining to the principal about his son's treatment. Unfortunately this only intensifies the bullying until Andrew takes his own life.

What has all this got to do with a local handyman being charged with the murder of an elderly woman - everything!!!! This is a biting, witty mystery - the sort you only seem to find in books. Diana Rigg gives a brilliant performance as Jill Craig, a woman where every action has a meaning. Although she doesn't appear until half way through the episode, her narration is brimming over with spiteful wit as only Miss Rigg can do.

"A whinging, self pitying sponger with a chip on his shoulder, if I wasn't depressed before, I was after half an hour in his company" - that's how Miss Craig describes handyman (Nick Reding, who I remembered instantly as being a "bad copper" from early episodes of "The Bill"). She has a deadly reason for hiring this layabout to do some odd job chores around the house (some she even has to invent) and also for befriending a busy body neighbour who doesn't miss a trick. Even at the very end Miss Craig manages to have the last laugh.

This episode sent me to my pile of DVDs to search for "The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries" starring Diana Rigg as the irrepressible, witty Mrs. Bradley, fictional solver of complex crimes during the roaring twenties. I'd forgotten how scintillating Miss Rigg could be!!

Highly Recommended.
