Elizabeth Peacock and Michael Mustard were overheard by the detective talking about a lost masterpiece they had found among the charity auction lots and hoped to buy for next to nothing, and Ben had wanted a piece of the action...

Actress Marieanne Kray and producer Toby Taylor are at Arlington Grange to make a film about its former owner, George Velares.

Mustard knew Velares and now understands how he died. Marieanne and Elizabeth Peacock were once in a theatre company together, and Elizabeth believes Marieanne poisoned her to get a leading role from her... while Peter Plum thinks Marieanne stole his film script on the story of Velares. Marieanne, meanwhile, is thinking of writing her memoirs, in which she plans to tell all about an old affair with Jonathan Green. Who is the murderer, and why?
2x02 The Best Insurance (May 01, 1991)
After a string of thefts from the Grange, George Biddle comes to call, in connection with Mrs Peacock's insurance claim. Who is the thief? And, indeed, was anything really stolen? A number of other issues come to the surface. There are obscurities about an insurance claim on the late Mr Peacock's death. Biddle, an old friend of Colonel Mustard's, had promised him a directorship but had not delivered. It seems that Green had made a suspicious claim for some supposedly missing candlesticks, while Biddle also knew that Scarlet had sold a valuable bronze and put a modern copy in its place. And did Mrs White really set fire to the last house she worked in?The real mystery is surely that Biddle managed to survive for more than five minutes at Arlington Grange.
2x01 A Deadly Deal (April 24, 1991)
Simon Charles, a financial advisor, persuaded those at the Grange to put money into a deal that has gone spectacularly wrong. Fortunately, Simon didn't lose money himself. His advice now is that he can offer a way for his friends to recoup their losses - but, of course, they will need to invest more money first... Scarlet's virtue (or what's left of it, anyway) may be at stake, as a result of her losses. Green has secretly lost £20,000 which Mrs Peacock gave him for a church restoration project. Mrs White risked her life savings on the first deal and now has nothing left for the second. Plum, meanwhile, discovers that Simon's deal is connected with computer software stolen from him. Which of these, then, is the motive for Simon's murder?
