The British obsession with murder owes more to the conditioning belief of understanding that order will always be restored rather than wanting to see someone get away with the act. Not for nothing is the book charts on any local high street bookshop always seen to have the latest crime novel within tidy ranks but the authors of such are seen arguably to be in the eyes of many people amongst the most interesting to read. Nobody wants to see anyone get away with murder but there is always something slightly devilish about hoping to see it attempted and in Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None murder is drawn to a perfect art.

The Victorian society, one so noble, one so pretentious and self serving, had no qualms about the dealing with those they saw as lingering within the realms of madness, those they thought were drawn too deeply to the shadowed recesses of the mind as to actually give them many euphemisms and one that has persisted through time is the mad woman in the attic, the woman who is locked away from even her own family for the fear of the dark web that she surrounds herself with.

Audiences wait an eternity for television drama to make its way back to the Second World War espionage era and then two perfectly good ones come along in a matter of weeks. The second of these diverted away from the thrilling William Boyd penned Restless with the stunning Hayley Atwell as the heroine and focused on the months before the invasion of Poland in Spies of Warsaw with another television favourite, David Tennant, in the lead role.
