Detective Murdoch investigates the murder of Julia Ogden's husband, Dr. Darcy Garland who is found on his living room floor with a bullet through the head. No murder weapon can be found and there is no sign of forced entry. His housekeeper, a somewhat hostile Mrs. Weller, confirms that Garland kept a gun in the house. She also says she had been given the day off by Julia who, according to the neighbor Mrs. Smythe, arrived a short while later. Chief Constable Giles removes Murdoch from the case given his relationship with Julia and takes charge of it himself. As the evidence mounts, Julia is arrested and goes on trial. Murdoch is convinced she is being framed. Written by garykmcd

Huge, annoying plot hole.
22 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

How can a patient of Dr. Ogden's be treated at the asylum without anyone else being aware of the existence of the woman? In court Dr. Ogden clearly states she was treating the patient as a resident of the asylum because she had become crazy with fear of being killed by her husband. And, when her husband appeared outside the asylum she took the lady to safety at her sisters house. Dr. Ogden is pronounced guilty because not one shred of evidence suggests this woman exists. I don't see how no one at the asylum knew of this patient. I could understand if no one could find the patient after the fact. However, the premise that there was no intake paperwork at the asylum, that a patient can receive food and shelter at the asylum for days without being seen or documented is beyond believability.
