Storyline

The women surmise that the killer is a rail employee, familiar with train times, who offered his victims perfume or nylons to go with him and they narrow the list of suspects down to three men. However, when Susan takes her theory to DCI Compton, in the absence of Wainwright, he is dismissive. Following a failed attempt to trap the killer,in which Lucy, acting as bait, is sexually assaulted by a passenger who is not the murderer, they discover that their original theory is wrong. Susan suspects that the real killer set up the others as red herrings and believes he learned how to cover his tracks because he also worked in espionage. She visits ex-spy master Cavendish, who gives her the name of a man who became psychologically unstable after being buried in rubble for three days. Susan goes to see the man's psychiatrist, unaware that she is facing the man himself. Written by don @ minifie-1

The might of four.
13 October 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

With the four minds working as one unit the killer's days are surely numbered. The second part builds the story, and delves further into the lives of the four main characters.

The episode is ultimately successful, in thay it builds on the story, which gets darker and more intruguing, it develops each of the characters, giving them all plausible lives, and it manages to successfully create a flavour of life in Britain in the 1950's, giving an insight into what life was like for many women.

The acting is impeccable once again. All perform beautifully, but for me it's Anna Maxwell Martin who steals the show, her acting and character are engrossing. She was definitely the missing element in the recent Bletchley San Francisco series.

It's so interesting, so well constructed, I can't wait to see the conclusion. 9/10
