Storyline

Wetherton's domestic bliss is rocked when housewife, Susan Goodman, is murdered while doing her weekly shopping. Lethal chemical, teltroxin, is the cause of death and Susan's demise is soon followed by that of Angela Veitch. As the two victims lives are put under the spotlight, a link between them and a health retreat called Arcadia is discovered. Dalziel and Pascoe head off to Arcadia, finding the slippery Brian Fairmile ruling the roost. When another guest at the retreat is killed, Dalziel and Pascoe discover more connections between the victims, large sums of money, and a mysterious Barbara Lennox. Could the person who sourced the lethal chemical be responsible for the deaths? Who exactly is Barbara? And when two people vanish, where have they gone and are they running in fear for their lives?

A dramatic opening leads the duo to an unusual hotel.
17 April 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Arcadia is offered as a Health resort, and a place of healing and sanctuary, but several deaths are seemingly linked to the strange place.

A really strong start, which sees a fairly dramatic death at a Supermarket, plus some complications for Peter, having a troubled Rosie home.

I'm not sure it can be classed as one of the best, but it does have some great moments, including the opening, and a strong performance from Anton Lesser.

A very solid episode. 8/10
