Both dull and obvious
25 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

"Mister Clay, Mister Clay, Who Are You Going To Kill Today?". That's the rhyme that some pupils in a boys' school have devised, aimed at their nervous young teacher who seems unable to enforce discipline in his class. When the most unruly of his pupils is found dead after being locked in a closet, people at the school start wondering: did Mister Clay finally go over the edge?

This is the third episode in the "Time For Murder" series, and it's easily the weakest one so far in my opinion. It is dull to watch, despite the promising setting, and the identity of the killer becomes very obvious after a while (he is all but shown to the audience). The ending is fairly strong, but cannot save the entire episode. Interesting to see Joan "Miss Marple" Hickson in another mystery production of the 1980s, but her character (like some others) is quite superfluous. *1/2 out of 4.
