In trying to find a bullet in an ornate wooden mantelpiece, the police use a mine detector. The operator moves along past a large clock without an indication, but then it whines indicating something metal and a small .22 bullet is dug out of the woodwork. To find such a small bullet the detector must have been set to a high setting, yet missed all the metalwork in the clock. See more »

A True Case Based on Fact
17 February 2018 | by l_rawjalaurenceSee all my reviews

This episode reminds us that all the cases in SCOTLAND YARD are based on fact. This one has a real judge talking with Edgar Lustgarten on the ethics of the case, and explaining the mechanics of judgement. The case itself is a classic example of identity theft.
