| The most far fetched of the four but still excellent
I really do love this series. This is the third episode and is also quite strange. I find myself compelled to review every episode but it is becoming more difficult. I haven't seen the pilot episode as I was ill when it was screened but have since no desire as Doyle is not Edwards and do I want to see my hero portrayed by someone who will have to prove themselves to me all over again and may fail? I should hate to not like anything about Murder Rooms.

So this episode is a little over the top (the bit with Doyle being hunted down like a dog and the elephants) but hey- the acting, writing and directing makes anything believable.

The episode is about sins of the fathers beliefs but is rather conspiritist and ritualistic.

This is the episode where we meet Innes, Doyle's little brother who provides great brotherly strife and find out about their father.

Also Crispin Bonham-Carter puts in a short appearance before - ah, well I can't tell you. It's so hard to discuss murder mysteries. This is a great drama series and portrays Doyle in a very good light but as always the comedy is very sharp. This episode it comes from the circus folk and Doyle's dealings with them, the annoying man Bonham-Carter calls in, especially with the bomb evacuation and the brothers Doyle arguing, with Arthur regressing to childhood.

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle = Brilliant at everything. Edwards and Richardson = exceptional in their roles. Murder Rooms = wow.
