Goofs

The MCS captain, played by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, tells her detectives that the ME is ruling the deaths as a "double murder." "Murder" is a legal term that is applied based on varying statutory degrees of intent, and would not have been applied by the coroner. The correct term would be "homicide," which means "death that is caused by another." "Homicide" can be determined by an autopsy, but "murder" would be applied by the prosecutor. See more »

Agatha Christie style
12 July 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This is an unusual Criminal Intent story in that Jeff Goldblum narrates it to a female shrink he's having an afternoon in London with. We know that Goldblum had an unusual upbringing and this concerns a family he hung out with. Which is why he never should have caught the case. He's getting something in the will of the deceased.

The deceased was an eccentric millionaire who collected antiquities and it's one of those antiquities that is the McGuffin. Besides his daughter who is schizophrenic the deceased had a lot of people hanging around him with some sordid motives. But one of them really isn't who he says he is.

I guess because of the London setting Goldblum and Saffron Burrows solve this one Agatha Christie style with all the dramatis personae present when all is revealed. The perpetrator has one beaut of a motive.
