Storyline

Bullying snob Alistair Kingslake is killed with a golf iron at the Whiteacres golf club. After another member, Miles Tully, tells Barnaby about illegal gambling among players, another member, who has had an 'odd phone call' is also slain. A figure in a blue tracksuit is seen at both murders. In fact there have been unreported assaults on members over the months. Barnaby discovers that the gambling is rife and the social-climbing steward , Mrs. Fountain, and her two warring sons are lending money to the gamblers and assaulting them if they fail to pay. Indeed Mrs. Fountain's scheming has driven the killer to commit the Dogleg Murders. Written by don @ minifie-1

Goofs

On the board with the map detailing the golf course, there is a handwritten note that says "Victim found by DCI Jones". Indeed, the body was found by 'DS Ben Jones', but Jones is a detective sergeant, not a detective chief inspector. See more »

Microcosm of Snobbery
4 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The setting for this episode is a snooty golf club where the members seem so full of self- importance that they seem able to get away with just about anything. At the center are two men and their unscrupulous mother. One is a handsome nitwit and the other a big burly, imposing nitwit. The old lady is running some kind of racket, bringing in lots of money. The loot is kept in a box, under a concrete floor in a pig sty. Barnaby and Jones must wade through this world based on hitting a little white ball to try to figure out who murdered two men. The caste system here really gets in the way. There are two kinds of people: the arrogant rich and a group that seems really scared of everything. There is also a love interest, a young woman, who also appears to be a nitwit. It is entertaining enough, mostly because of the insane depth of greed and arrogance of the members of the club.
