| A more emotionally deep episode.
Ex Doctor Leonard Quinton has a fascination with India, he's given a prophecy by his servant Umesh that he will die that very day. Soon enough the body of Quinton is found hanging in a locked room, with a note left 'I die by my own hand.'

Quite enjoyed this one, an interesting mystery with each character a suspect. The story itself is really interesting, it's sad, and a lot deeper then we'd previously had on the series.

The level of acting is top notch, the show has always had the ability to cast an excellent and varied bunch of actors. Ruth Gemmell in particular is excellent, a stoic but wonderfully emotional turn, she's great. I also enjoyed watching Ramon Tikaram here, he added some depth to the character of Umesh.

Lovely production values, great sets and costumes etc, it's hard to understand why this show doesn't have a more popular evening time slot.

A few unanswered questions, but they seem not to matter, it's enjoyable. 8/10
