Umney’s Last Case
Pretty thin premise for an hour-long show. However, William H. Macy did the best he could. The whole kid-drowning thing was very upsetting to me…was that in the original story? N&D isn’t one of my favorite collections, so I probably read it through just one time before finding it a place on the shelf.
The End of the Whole Mess
This one was a bit better. At least, there was a plot to work with and the characters were interesting. However, my husband “distracted” me before the Alzheimer’s set in…was that well handled? If anyone’s still watching after the Crouch End debacle, please let me know what you thought!
