Brilliant episode
2 May 2019 | by lbowdlsSee all my reviews

This is a fantastic episode, I luckily watched it by accident thinking that it's one I'd seen before. This has an over abundance of twists and suspects and the conclusion isn't until the very last minute. Up until then every suspect you're yelling I knew it was .... oh wait no.... ah yes it's.... instead. An incredible simple, single murder winds in more directions than a roller coaster. Murder mystery followers will absolutely love the way that it brilliantly hides the identity of the ultimate murder!
