Aided by new sergeant Camille Poole suspects Lisa was having an affair,either with best man Adam or the hunky diving-instructor Stefan,whose prints are the only ones on the murder weapon. Then it is announced that Lisa was an heiress,due to inherit a large legacy on getting married. So was the motive greed or a crime of passion?

A very good second episode.
12 April 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A very good follow up episode, the second instalment boasts an excellent cast and a strong story. I wonder if the BBC knew they had a winning format, to assemble the likes of Frances Barber, Patterson Joseph and Robert Pugh shows a faith in the show.

The plot is very good, full of intrigue and clever, plenty of twists and turns, and a well thought out misdirection. The characters are great, it's the dynamic between fish out of Water DI Poole and the feisty Camille that's the main interest. There's a great scene where she puts him in his place, and the relationship changes between them.

For me it's Patterson Joseph that stands out, such a talented man, he's brilliant in this.

I'm struck by the slightly more serious tone in these early episodes, compared to the latest offerings.
