As his father, Alan, celebrates his retirement from the family property firm, David Kenworthy is found murdered on a beach several miles away. An immediate suspect is arcade owner Larry Crowe, who was seen arguing with David and who hates the Kenworthy family since his son fell to his death from their roof over 30 years ago. However, he has an alibi. David's girlfriend Nicky accused him of keeping secrets from her, leading Vera to believe David was going to a clandestine meeting with his killer. Then Lorna, his sister, who has been estranged from her father for decades, arrives with her husband for the funeral and, after Alan has died of a heart attack, she admits to Vera the reason for her rift with her father and the true nature of her relationship with David. This in turn leads to the killer and their motive. Written by don @ minifie-1

Patrick Crowe's death certificate shows that he was fifteen years old at his death in 1977, and that he'd been in employment as a labourer. The School Leaving Age was raised to sixteen in 1972 so, by law, Patrick would have been still at school. See more »

Almost need translation
2 October 2015 | by michelvegaSee all my reviews

I love British mystery shows including this one. I only saw two episodes this far including this one. First one aired on PBS had the wrong title episode and this one had none, so I had to find it on the Internet.I understand and write English quite well and can go through a book on quantum mechanics without getting lost, but this British accent is often hard on my ears. With a title I can go on the Web and read the synopsis. Without one I'm nearly lost in the action. I could almost use subtitles to follow the story. That said, I like Vera and her team. Very engaging and enjoyable. Maybe if I watch enough of the shows, which I intend to, I will eventually get to understand this other English dialect.I also had this problem with Morse in the days but not as bad as now. A thought just occurred to me: maybe there is a book of translation on English to English somewhere. Will check on it.
