Richard Jury Mysteries -  The Man with a Load of Mischief
Scotland Yard Chief Inspector Richard Jury investigates a series of bizarre murders in Long Piddleton with the help of his aristocratic assistant Melrose Plant. The first of 22 classic mysteries by Martha Grimes.

Quaint, sleepy Long Piddleton becomes the scene of bizarre and grisly murders. There's no lack of suspects with secrets to hide and skeletons in the closet, however. Scotland Yard sends their best man to investigate: Chief Inspector Richard Jury. For the first time, Inspector Jury is assisted by brilliant aristocrat Melrose Plant, whom he takes to be conceited fop, to begin with. As different as the two men are in method and temperament, still they strike up an unlikely friendship. Pity they're both interested in the same woman, of course: beautiful Vivian Rivington.

The first adaptation of bestselling American author Martha Grimes' Richard Jury Mysteries. Shot in Dorset in the South of England, directed by Grimme Prize winner Edzard Onneken ("Turkish for Beginners")
3 x 90 min. (2 new episodes coming soon)
