Refreshing episode
10 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

First of all I have to confess that it's been a while since I last saw this episode. I remember it being very entertaining but rather odd as Felicity Kendal is hardly in it. The lovely Belinda Lang does however step into her shoes rather well and FK was barely missed. The storyline has her injured after falling from a scaffold. It did cross my mind that she may have been injured for real during filming and been written out. Because of the sequence of the filming later on though this seems unlikely. Just why BL was brought in to virtually take over the roll is anybody's guess. The plot was fairly complex and involved the usual dead bodies in the undergrowth and the guilty whispering about their secrets with our hero pair hidden behind the nearest tree. The climax was set on a canal route; hence the episode's title. Altogether an above average and very watchable yarn which I'm surprised nobody else has commented on.
