ITV 8pm. MIDSOMER MURDERS

Post by Gordon Cadden » Tue Aug 08, 2017 6:26 pm

Members of a chess club are targeted by a killer. Terrifying stuff.

Is that not a repeat?
If they show it one more time, a draw can be claimed.

I think this is the third showing, of those noted by the forum anyway.

Two more shwings and it will be declared a draw, without any claim by either player.

I claim a draw now rather than wait for more repeats of same programme. There was I thinking Fay Ripley was the murderer again and getting it wrong again.

I hope you didn't bet on it.

My first viewing of this chess mystery. The early club scenes looked authentic, with an assortment of chess clocks, and a lookalike Kevin O'Connell, acting as Arbiter. Great shame that Kevin was strangled half-way through the programme.
Even the CID chief reminded me of David Cameron. And that chess playing dog; straight from " His Masters Voice".
