The Best Ellery Queen episode ever......
....is being broadcast on BBC2 at 0.20 am tonight (ie Tuesday morning).
If you're in Britain or able to receive BBC2 don't miss it, you won't regret it, I can assure you.
The Adventure of Caesar's Last Sleep (not 'Caesar's Sheep' as it states on the BBC website!), is an ingenious locked room mystery involving the murder, in a New York hotel room, of a key informant in a mobster trial. Police guard the ante-room and the windows are locked. How was the informant murdered?
The solution will be a surprise to most viewers, but all the clues are there before your very eyes.
The best ever episode in the best ever mystery series. Enjoy!
PS Note to BBC2 chiefs:
Well done for re-showing Ellery Queen- for that alone I'm happy to pay my licence fee. But why on earth show these wonderful programmes at twenty past midnight on a Monday night?
Put them on in the evenings on BBC1 or BBC2 and you'd be amazed at the ratings you'd get.
