Summary:
Inspector Michael Jericho investigates the murder of a young black man in the racially divided neighborhood of Notting Hill. On the same night as the killing, Sir Nicholas Wellesley (Michael Fenner, Inspector Morse) is kidnapped from his exclusive club and held for ransom—which his wife Lady Clare (Francesca Annis, Reckless) insists on paying. When Jericho discovers that Sir Nicholas lives a secret double life that leads back to Notting Hill, he determines that the crimes must be connected. About the Jericho series: Inspector Michael Jericho (Robert Lindsay, Horatio Hornblower, Oliver Twist) is a brilliant detective and a darling of the media. However, he is haunted by the memories of his father, a policeman whose murder Jericho witnessed as a boy. Never married, and alone since his childhood sweetheart left him for another during WWII, Jericho is obsessed with his work at Scotland Yard. Yet, he finds himself drawn to his beautiful French neighbor Juliette (Aurélie Bargème)-–a prostitute with a tortured past. Set amidst the social upheaval of post-war 1950s London, Jericho unravels headline-grabbing mysteries. His diligent team includes faithful friend and colleague Detective Sergeant Clive Harvey (David Troughton, Foyle's War) and the ambitious young Detective Constable John Caldicott (Ciarán McMenamin, David Copperfield), whose warm relationship with his fiancée starkly contrasts Jericho's lonely nighttime vigils. Special DVD features include access to the MYSTERY! Web site, scene selection and closed captions.
