Storyline

DCI Tom Barnaby and DS Ben Jones investigate the death of Simon Bright who is found dead inside an old World War II vintage Humber parked at an abandoned airfield. From all appearances, the death appears to be a suicide, but the pathologist determines that the man suffered a severe blow to the dead and may in fact have been unconscious when he died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Simon Bright's girlfriend, Laura Sharp, is nowhere to be found, but the death of the aging village Lothario and the attempted murder of another of her friends narrows the list of possible murderers somewhat. Barnaby is convinced that one of Laura's ex-lovers is responsible but given her rather active life, the question becomes which one? Written by garykmcd

Goofs

When Barnaby and Jones drive to the airfield to look at the second body, the car arrives in heavy rain: there are puddles on the ground and distant rumbles of thunder can be heard. But when they get out of the car a few seconds later, the ground is dry and people in the distance are casting shadows, showing that the weather has suddenly become sunny. See more »

Sad, seedy, and slow
20 April 2017 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I don't care for episodes that truly bring out the seedy side of humanity, but this is a murder series, so I can accept it occasionally. This episode includes sexual manipulation, preying on the vulnerable — the lonely, the elderly, etc. The murderer gained my sympathy even as I felt repulsed. I was further saddened by the age of the murdered youth. Not children, but young adult. Then there was the dirty old man. Ugh. Just lots of ugliness.

The World War II fighter-pilot theme was a plus, even though the vintage dance did go on a bit too long, slowing the pace further. I enjoyed the soprano soloist in the red dress. Memorably poignant scenes with old Aunt Rosemary, still waiting for her brother to come home from war.
