Episode 24: THE FLOWERS OF EDINBURGH
Written by Eddie Boyd
Directed by Jonathan Wright Miller
GERMAN: Blumen aus Edinburgh
Bulman and Willis catch Johnny McGuire with what they believe to be a "blue movie" and which turns out to be about Scotland. DC Bennett, staying just there with Ludo Leishman (with whom she seems to enjoy some sort of intimate relationship), finds her contact, Angela Walker, lying dead in the park. Ludo, meanwhile, is taken in by Inspector Jenkins. Receiving reports of McGuires death Bulman and Willis join Bennett in Edinburgh to investigate ...
Writing, camera and editing impress from the start. McManus' broad Scottish accent ("Rrrobbish!") is hilarious as ever. The incidental music is inspired as usual.
