Editors' Spotlight

The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Prisoner Leon Hamilton is being escorted by ferry to Sainte Marie when he is stabbed to death, an embarrassment to Poole, who was hand-cuffed to him at the time. Hamilton was convicted of a holiday home scam and two of the passengers on the ferry, whodunnit fan and grand-daughter of investors, Suzie Park, and thuggish Sam King, an associate of another victim Gordon Foster, whose wife left him after his ruination, would seem to be likely suspects - until Poole uncovers a cunning identity swap.

Camille Bordey: Are you okay?
DI Richard Poole: [sitting back in his chair] The commissioner and I had a frank exchange of views. And it was decided I hadn't exactly covered myself in glory as far as the prisoner's transfer was concerned.
