Lucien goes to the local TV station when one of his patients is found dead. James Holbrook was a contestant on the quiz show Game of Champions and had just won £1000 by defeating the reigning champion Simon Lo. Holbrook was found dead in a studio dressing room and had seemingly died of a heart attack. A cursory examination in the morgue however reveals that he had in fact been electrocuted. Lo was unhappy at having lost telling hosts Verity and Alan Coleman that the game was fixed and they made him lose. James, Simon, station employee Dawn Prentice and TV repairman Roger Lambert all went to school together and there was bad blood between the dead James and Roger. Blake is befuddled by the case until he realizes he's made an incorrect assumption. Written by garykmcd

This show had an interesting topic. Apparently 1000 pounds was a really significant amount. A TV quiz show has two bright people compete (not unlike the 64,000 Question. One of them is handsome and polite and quite charming; the other is an Asian man who has minimal social skills. After the former wins the title (due to the fixing of the show), he goes to his room where he is electrocuted when he touches his television. Of course, his opponent is the immediate suspect (even though he had nothing to gain) because the viewers hated him and because of racism. Dr. Blake moves in and befriends the loser only to have an enormous twist occur. Decent story.
