Duller then dishwater.
5 August 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The only case where the accused wasn't found guilty and hanged, that's perhaps the biggest positive I can find. The story itself is very dull, by far the least interesting in the series, it feels as if it was inserted to make up the numbers.

The production itself is very dull, nothing whatsoever stands out, it's flat and tedious, virtually nothing is memorable. I will give credit to Ian McCulloch, for making John Inglis interesting, and to Philip Voss, who's always great. Sadly I can find few other positive comments.

I've forgotten it already. 5/10
