The Case of the Missing Lady
16 April 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Explorer Gabriel Stavansson has arrived early from his latest long term expedition only to find his fiancee is missing.

Stavansson calls in to see Tommy and Tuppence.

Their investigations lead them to The Grange House, some kind of sanitarium that seems to be holding a woman against her will.

Tuppence visits to stay at Grange House as a Russian ballerina. Tommy meanwhile pretends to be some kind of vagrant gardener hanging about outside.

The episode plays around the convention of the sinister staff running a small private hospital and maybe carrying out diabolical experiments.

The trouble is, it is a woeful episode. I was bored as the audience watching Tuppence putting on a dance recital at Grange House.

It actually wants to do something clever with the mystery trope. You even have Tommy mimicking Sherlock Holmes at one point, but falls far short.
