Storyline

Mass murderer's descendant plots quicker inheritance options when his ill, rich uncle Pontifex, takes up with Queenie De Lyte, a stripper turned art fancier. A psychologist cured Pontifex's obsession with restoring ancient family homes, destroying nephew Tundifer's hope of having Pontifex declared incompetent. Tundifer looks exactly like his evil ancestor, a portrait of whom hangs in one family mansion, whose expensive renovation may include a portal to a prior century. Written by David Stevens

Poor. Edward Andrews
9 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is the third time that Edward Andrews has been cast as a murderer. In all three episodes he is so overconfident that he makes careless errors. In this one, he finds himself in a house where he goes back to the 1890's. He uses the house to try to murder his rich uncle. Once he thinks the old guy has bought the farm, he takes up with gold digging stripper who had her hooks into the uncle. She was banking on his inheritance. Once old Edward thinks he is on easy street, he starts to hook up with our little miss. Like the other characters he plays, he does a terrible job of remaining inconspicuous. There are too many variables that he needs to consider, but, for the most part, he is just a knuckle-head. The time element is kind of hard to get one's hands around.
