Synopsis by Rebecca Flint Marx
Gore combines with dry British wit in this whodunit. After brilliant, successful defense attorney Venetia Aldridge (Penny Downie) is found murdered in her court chambers, it's anybody's guess who killed her; a controversial personality who didn't hesitate to mince words around her male colleagues, Aldridge made a number of enemies. It's up to Scotland Yard's formidable Commander Adam Dalgliesh (Roy Marsden) to solve her murder. Adapted from the celebrated novel by P.D. James.
