Storyline

Nick and Honey Addams return home to find their baby-sitter, Jess Lake, murdered. She was tied to a bed and indeed often posed for bondage and fetish shots for photographer Marion Hammond. She also worked in a university lab with her boyfriend Gideon's father Dr. Massey, who is divorced from his unfeeling wife Stanza. Honey admits that Nick does not have an alibi but he seems to have no link to the next victim, Jess's house mate Silas, whose corpse is also arranged in the style of one of Marion's photos. Lewis finds himself tracking a killer who is a seemingly respectable citizen but who has a split personality rendering them an obsessive. Written by don @ minifie-1

We see a chess game against the computer (a online person). The woman (playing as black) makes a move and the PC says, "... pawn to E5" from the 7th row." This should be, "... pawn to D5." The 4th column on a chessboard is the D-column. See more »

After eighteen year old babysitter, Jessica Lake, is murdered she is found tied to the bed using distinctive boating knots; something that initially suggests the killer was a sailor but photographs come to light indicating that her body had been placed in a way that mirrored pictures she had posed for. It also seems rather odd that she was unmolested and nothing of value had been stolen from the house which left no obvious motive. There are lots of suspects including her boyfriend, the two boys she shared a squat with and even the parents of the child she was looking after… their alibi rapidly falls apart. As Lewis and Hathaway investigate they find themselves dealing with swingers, a comic book fan and scientists doing research with monkeys and they will have to eliminate many false leads before they catch the killer.

This was another enjoyable episode with plenty of suspects and motives to keep both the police and the viewers guessing and when we do learn who killed Jessica it is neither to surprising nor too obvious… I'm sure most viewers will have the killer on their list of suspects without being really sure why. After a couple of episodes set in the university it made a nice change to have a case set mainly in suburbia. As always the acting was fairly solid; especially from leads Kevin Whately and Laurence Fox… although that is hardly a surprise as neither of them has disappointed me in previous episodes. Overall this was another solid episode even though it didn't have too many murders!
