Storyline

At first the murders of Reg Chapman, a handy man at the Bodleian Library and gambling addict, and Nell Buckley, a popular Art student, seem unrelated. However, it transpires that Chapmen stole parchment from the library upon which Nell and another student persuaded Philip, a brilliant, autistic young painter, to innocently forge letters by the poet Shelley for the international collectors' market. When both victims, for different reasons, threatened to expose the mastermind behind the scam, they were killed. Written by don @ minifie-1

Good episode
6 March 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Interesting story with good acting by Tom Riley as the autistic artist. Using the 'stacks' of the Bodleian library was a good idea that could have been made more of. (How odd that the library only seems to have two employees, of whom one is dead.)

It's all a bit unlikely as usual - coincidentally, everybody who ever appears turns out to be linked.

I still have my problems with Lewis and Hathaway as a team. The scene outside the party exemplifies this. If the title 'The Glums' had not already been taken, it would be quite appropriate for the double act of these two. Hathaway, in particular, is a charisma and interest free zone. On the good side, his diction seems a little better than previously.
