Foley gives his help grudgingly,disdainful of 'modern' methods,speculating that Saville woke to see Elizabeth with a lover,possibly Saville's father,an unpopular man. Part of a woman's torn garment is found,stained in blood,and Constance,Kent's sixteen-year-old daughter from his first marriage, claims she lost a night-gown. Dr. Stapleton,the family physician,tells Whicher that Constance,like her mother,is dangerously unstable and jealous of Saville.

Is this boring case really needed to be made into a boring movie?
4 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A typical so-called English mystery that usually written by British female mystery writers and, they are just too many to be counted. Most of these no-big-deal "mysteries" would have been adapted into TV movies, then PBS would re-broadcast on American PBS channels. Funny thing is that I've never considered most these "mysteries" as real mysteries but no-big-deal bloated big deal, yet bore-to-death if truth could be really told. This movie is no exception and again, I really don't know such boring case would worth making into a movie, even it's based on a true story, so what? What we saw is a detective used his instinct and experience in murder investigations to try so hard to break a so obvious family murder case, the only thing he lacked material evidence and material witness. This kind of storyline is the typical mystery formula so adoringly adopted by the British female mystery writers and almost 99% of the British mysteries are just like this one. It's so flat that just like the heartland of America, so flat and endless in 4 directions.
