Murder Most English
A kindly detective puts right the wrongs in a sleepy English town in Murder Most English, a series of 4 mysteries (each shown in 2 parts) based on the detective novels by Colin Watson that aired in the UK during May and June, 1977.
Clad in tweed and puffing on a pipe, Detective Inspector Purbright (played by Anton Rodgers) pursues the evildoers of Flaxborough with a doggedness that belies his polite conversation and mild manner. And a good thing, too. For although the quiet country town appears all gentility, beneath the surface lies a darker world of deception, intrigue, treachery, and infidelity.
