Close to being a disaster

Wealthy George Devon is very tight with his money, he has twin nephews Donald and David, one day one of them calls on the old man to try and get some cash out of him, when he refuses one of them plunges a knife deep into his back killing him outright. The offender is witnessed by long standing housekeeper Mary, the trouble is she cannot tell the twins apart, she knows it was one of them, but not sure which. It seems maybe only local barmaid Sally may have the answer.

I am not a fan, it looks and feels so cheap and unprofessional, the recent batch of episodes have been very grown up, serious and very engaging, this almost feels like they're sending the show up, it's very silly.

Some clever bits of trick photography, they did a great job of making David appear twice in scenes, although he looks very pale in some of the scenes.

It's boring, it could and should have been great, getting through these 25 minutes is hard work!!

3/10
