Storyline

As Goodman buys a boat Dan Hagen, wealthy philanthropist and oceanographic leader of a diving party, is shot on board his yacht whilst the four members of his group are all underwater and in each other's sight. Goodman is puzzled by the appearance of a toy soldier next to the corpse and learns, not only that Dan's ex-spouse and current trophy wife are in the party though apparently friends, but that Dan's colleague Sam Blake had argued with him over a professional matter and student Jonathan Taylor was a drug smuggler Dan exposed. Taylor is arrested but ultimately the toy soldier gives Goodman the clue to the way the murder was carried out. Written by don @ minifie-1

Series five begins with a clever mystery.
22 April 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

This is a terrific start to Series five, which sees Humphrey take on a case, which appears to be impossible to solve. How on Earth can someone commit a murder, when they were known to be elsewhere?

A very clever plot, with strong characters, and a funny side story of Humphrey acquiring a new yacht.

Emma Rugby and Neve McIntosh were both excellent, but what a waste of the talents of Julian Ovenden, I don't think he said a word, the show has always had a strange habit of wasting talent.

A great start to a very strong fifth series. 8/10
