I note the appearance of a niece. It remains to be seen if she is mousey and therefore the murderer.

A somewhat underwhelming episode. Hopefully tonight will give us some real edge of the seat stuff.


PS: I wonder how far into the story we will get before the Copyright Police turn up to seize jurisdiction from the local Fuzz?

I imagine that if we delete the earlier pages before a certain percentage of the publication has been reproduced then we'll be fine.

I was mostly commenting on the lack of enthusiasm from your readers, and did notice the introduction of another suspect.

I presume Craven must also have a niece.

It surprised me that a butler of Craven's experience would not know how many dozens of Ck08 remained in the bin. Perhaps that was the only way to introduce the cellar book as a suspect?

A butler can't always know immediately how many dozens of port his master has already guzzled. Especially one distressed by said master's untimely demise. And the very idea of a suspect cellar book - JDAW will be aghast!

I was all agog. To the trained mind no detail is too small to be overlooked. The evidence of the bottle is surely suggestive to even the meanest intelligence, I name no names...

And now, when you would like this evening's instalment posted? I have the photo here and ready to send but it seems awfully early.

I think a 21:00 episode would be good. I'll put the Hot Dogs on at 20:40.
