Maurice Lehman, a self-proclaimed, untalented artist, burns to death in his locked studio on the property he bought several years earlier when he won the lottery. An often abusive alcoholic, he lives with his beautiful Irish wife Christine, twenty years his junior, and Henry, a teen-aged Granadan boy whom he has "adopted" after spending time on the island celebrating his lucky windfall. Neither seems especially upset at his death. Also on Dangerous' list of people of interest are Lehman's brother and his wife, whose garment factory he walked out on after his lottery win. Written by

This is the best episode
13 July 2017 | by racesgirl2000-1See all my reviews

What to say about Christine? It's the best episode of the show since that bitch Julie wasn't in it and it was pretty cool.

It starts with Dangerous D trying to stop a guy called Billy trying to blow himself up but he got involved in the murder of a self-proclaimed, untalented artist Maurice Lehman who burns to death in his locked studio on the property he bought several years earlier when he won the lottery.

The show had some pretty good lines like Pimlott saying "Dear Dangerous, you really got to get off this habit of trusting people", Mod saying "Latin is an honor; Greek is a treat as Churchill once said" and the following conversations between Mod and Big D: Mod Lewis: Art is as unimportant as banking unless it comes from a spirit in free play, and then it really is banking.

Detective Constable 'Dangerous' Davies: What do you mean by that? Mod Lewis: Art for art's sake.

Detective Constable 'Dangerous' Davies: (as Mod is posing naked for an art class of senior women) I can see your bun! Mod Lewis: Art is not art unless it threatens.
