Storyline

Hardy continues to irritate Ellie, especially when he gets her to sit in on Mark's interview. Mark explains his finger-prints were at the murder scene because he did some work there but key-holder Susan Wright denies letting him in and work-mate Nige destroys his alibi. However hotelier Becca Fisher comes forward to admit to an affair with Mark, thus giving him a new alibi. Following Steve's theory the police find that Mark does have a boat, stained with Danny's blood though Mark explains he cut himself on a fishing trip. Beth is approached by Steve, who tells her Danny was killed by somebody close to him, increasing her doubts about her husband. Meanwhile Karen, unable to get any locals to speak to her, tells Maggie and Olly she is gunning for Hardy after he failed to solve a similar case and Hardy tells his doctor he has taken on this investigation as a 'penance'. He does nonetheless accepts a dinner invitation with Ellie and her family. Written by don @ minifie-1

How Red Is Your Herring?
22 August 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Things continue to develop. We now have the introduction of characters a who claim to have spoken to Danny. Beth is pursued by a guy who tells her that the person who killed her child is someone she knows well and to stop trying to find out who it is. She is so vulnerable, she begins to seek this man out. She is also pregnant and the young local priest checks on her. Are his attentions honorable. Meanwhile, Mark is caught in a lie, having had a fling that night with the local hotel owner. His lies and brings suspicion upon his good friend, whom he asks to lie for him. Alec is beside himself. He has some connection with the reporter who refers to something he did in the past. There is so much to wonder about, including the interview with Ellie's son, a friend of the deceased. He is hiding something, it would appear. There is also blood evidence on Mark's boat, making the closing scene really interesting.
