In our final mystery, the man set to play St. Bernard in the town's festival dies in an apparent accident. At the time, Shilling tries to find the Black Widow whose evil deeds connects the crimes in the first three episodes. The story comes to a resounding if not entirely unexpected solution. The story also features a few good character moments, particularly for Lady Penelope and Inspector Cribbage.
Writer/Producer/Sound Desiger Nigel Fairs deserves credit for how he manages to tantalize listeners for another series. He doesn't leave the key cases unsolved, but he drops hints of so many intriguing goings on about the village with hints of other unknown underhanded dealings, Inspector Cribbage stating he has a reason for being there and is making an inquiry and that some characters have secret pasts. On top of that, three characters end the series in very sticky situations. Thus instead of petering out, Series 1 sets the stage for more cases in a future box set.
