Storyline

Sam is shaken when she has to look into the death of a very dear friend, Dr. Annabelle Evans, a Cambridge professor. She was found in her home, badly beaten in what appears to be a botched burglary attempt. The police immediately focus on the husband as the likely killer but Sam suspects that an altercation at a local restaurant during the May Ball, where a waiter spilled wine on Annabelle and was fired on the spot, may provide another suspect. Sam is also intrigued by the relationship some of her students may have had with Annabelle, particularly when she learns her friend may have had a lover. In her personal life, Sam has moved on. Her sister Wyn has relocated to Ireland and Peter Ross has also been transferred. She does however run into an old friend who also happens to be an acquaintance of her business partner Trevor.

Death of a Friend
10 February 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Here we go into the third season. Sam is lecturing at the beginning on historical implications of forensic science. There is a ball at the college and she is having dinner with a group, including a longtime friend. Later, that friend is found murdered. Sam is conflicted. She starts to do the autopsy and her new supervisor pulls her off, realizing that this was a friend. There are so many potential suspects on the campus. The husband had had a real confrontation with the victim early on in the episode. There is a contrived suspense builder at the end.
