To make it easier to navigate, select a category below:. Intelligent and well mounted pieces on the life and times of the enigmatic Anne Boleyn. She was highly intelligent and accomplished, witty, sophisticated, emotional, cunning, perceptive, ruthless at her enemies , determined, pious, fun loving, creative — so many qualities, but above all she was incredibly brave. I agree with every word that Alex said. Anne Boleyn with all of those personality traits made her place in the fore front of history.
But Anne stands out because of her strength, she stood up to Henry and it took quite the woman to do that indeed! Was she a natural beauty? Would she have used anything? So she still tried. I have read that the typical idea of beauty at the time was light hair and eyes. Anne had dark hair and eyes. I believe she was considered attractive but not not in the typical way. In several books its said that Anne was the most desired by the men at court. I think she had magnetism and charm.
I think Anne was one of those women. How could just guess that? I have read different books about Anne Boleyn published at different times. Whatever her appearance was, Henry VIII liked it as he went to such trouble to secure her affections and he married her after waiting several years.
It also takes into question whether or not Anne had anything to do with the downfall of Cardinal Wolsey or if she were an innocent bystander. Might want to give it a go anyway. Ann bolyen was a very beautiful women. I pointed her out as a harlot. If you think about it there was no way that any person would talk to Henry VIII the way she supposedly did in that movie. Not to mention if you follow the history in that movie her sister supposedly had a little girl Naughty Boy, and other historical events are not correct.
That is my opinion anyway. I wish you could edit after you read what you have written. Lol… I wrote she had a little girl not a boy…. Henry and Cromwell would have milked any defects for all they were worth.
Remember he thought nothing of publicly declaring Ann of Cleves, stinky, and complained bitterly about her supposedly saggy breasts, so why did he not do the same to Ann? Not a chivalrous man at the best of times. I have always loathed him for that remark about Anne of Cleves — among so many other things.
I think he was schizophrenic and paranoid and he made it so many lies about her. Unfortunately those stories have carried on through time. That is the funniest thing I have ever seen. Natea, your post just made my morning. I believe your assumption is correct, and your reply most amusing, Claire.
Anyhow, thanks for making such a comprehensive site on one of the most interesting women in English History. And for putting up with the commentary of goofy youngsters, as is the responsibility of any good webmistress! Keep up the good work! I may have to correct quite a many few of you, Anne Boleyn did not in fact have an extra finger as when she was dug up and moved to a more respectful situated place she was said to have had no signs of a birth defect aka.
OK First off greeting from a fan here in the USA and I have been doing alot of reading on both Henry 8 and Anne Boleyn and Henry had an ego the size of this globe and I really do not think that Henry would marry a women who had several deformities. So I think that the 6th finger and 3rd breast and so on so was made up from the very people who did not like her and wanted to take her down.
In todays world Anne would just be passable but certainly not beautiful. She was considered beautiful back in tudor times but I think that was down to the way she worn her clothes, her humourous lighthearted behaviour and her learning.
You can see why Henry was attracted to her. Henry turned the world upside down for her only to turn inside out to get rid of her.
Would he have executed her if she gave him a son? Rumour has it that he tried to plea bargain with her prior to her execution by offering her her life if she gave up all rights to the throne and took Elizabeth and went abroad. To me Anne is my heroine as she was a remarkable, intelligent and humourous person, and she gave the ultimate sacrifice herself so that Elizabeth could rule and put the Great in Britain.
How right she was. She certainly showed that she had her fathers fire and her mothers wit when dealing with William Cecil concerning the succession and said to her Madam you must marry and produce an heir.
I love your assessment of Anne and her relationship with Henry! I can just see the two together.. My heritage is Scottish and English.
He portrayed her that way, I am sure of it. Think about it he wanted to make himself look better. He threw a hissy fit to the Pope so he could get a divorce. He also said that she had an affair with her younger brother. She was a woman of her time, that held her King in the highest regard. No matter what false accusations he held against her. History repeats itself, that is why he was married so many times.
Well, Natea, I assume with Claire , that you are joking, and really , if your going to say thingd like that , you should use proper spelling. Im no English teacher, but really, do it right! I agree with Jenny and Claire. I forgot to add , 3 breasts? That is entirely false?
What evidence is there for that? The history books have left out a very important fact. Girls, women, had no say in their lives back in those days. Their fathers, husband, uncles, brothers, whoever was head of the family dictated what they did. Anne Boleyn for example, her Uncle the Duke of Norfolk decided her fate, her father gladly went along because it meant power for him. If Anne had refused she would have been beaten and thrown out with nothing.
Secondly, who would dare to refuse the King whatever he wanted. Jane Seymour had no choice with her father and eldest brother pushing her into the marriage. Katherine Howard had little choice pushed by her Uncle who also had pushed Anne Boleyn.
And Katherine Parr she was a widow, who had been left penniless and had no choice either. Anne Boleyn was no witch, whore, home wrecker, the men in her life were. Would just like to point out, Katherine Parr was not left penniless.
She inherited her husbands fortune and was a independently wealthy widow. She had plans to marry Thomas Seymour. But unfortunately for her, she then caught the kings attention. At last a comment on how it was for women in those times Anne Boleyn was undoubtedly controlled and manipulated by the men in her family to merely empower and benefit them. Anne would have had no choice other than to carry out her father and uncles wishes or orders. She was used in what was a man,s world.
Whether she was beautiful, had any extra fingers or breasts is not the issue. As she was most definitely a brave and strong woman who would not be controlled by any man. She put her daughters future first which is what any good mother would do. She is who we all remember as henry vIII,s wife. Give anne Boleyn some credit!
I have always believed that once Henry cast his eye her way and her uncle and father became aware, her path was drawn and she probably would have had little to say about it. It is clear that Henry was a womanizer and the women in his court were his personal playground, I bet it was prudent to keep him happy. Anne obviously possessed some quality or qualities that kept Henry coming around.
If anything I feel so sorry for women of the time, I am sure we would all end up being beaten and executed. The things that guides tell people makes me so cross. Why they have to embellish the facts is beyond me, the story is interesting enough as it is.
I believe tour guides would make something up indeed to catch the crowds attentions and keep it for sure. My one surprise is the Elizabeth did not dig up her mothers remains and give it a proper burial does anyone know why?
Lizzy knew what she was doing. Her throne was not entirely stable and few people liked me since they supported Katherine./p>

My one surprise is the Elizabeth did not dig up her mothers remains and give it a proper burial does anyone know why? Lizzy knew what she was doing. Her throne was not entirely stable and few people liked me since they supported Katherine. It would be unwise politically to call attention to me being her mother. I understand perfectly and believe she made a wise decision. Why should anyone care??
She was still quite a force in the history of England and the church. I doubt that Henry had her beheaded because she had six fingers. He loved her at one time, and i have no doubt that he regretted his orders, Henry was a dumbass and most likely ill. From everything I have read on her and her sister it was a extra nail and she wear dresses with long sleeves to cover it.
What could that be? But nail does not a finger make. Oh yes, in fact the sixth finger fell off one day onto the carpet in her room and she threw it into the fire pretending it was the last chicken bone from dinner the night before. Since we none of us knew her that seems a bit cruel. She had alot of people profoundly jealous as well as scared of the new ideas about religion, which it appears Anne was supportive of. Always remember history is written by the winners and Anne was not the winner here, her peers had much to lose.
Also, when is the other woman ever portrayed as anything but a loose woman, ugly and bad. A good majority of the things I have read on Anne Boleyn has stated that she had a double fingernail on her pinky finger. That is a far cry from an extra finger. The tragic truth is that she fell for Henry as much as he did her.
They have found love letters that he supposedly sent to her. He sent her expensive gifts, left his true wife, suffered excommunication from the Catholic church to have her.
To jump at the next woman that was shoved under his nose. Anne made too many enemies and that was ultimately her down fall. The existence of an additional finger does occur though it is rare.
Today when it happens, it is amputated immediately upon birth. It usually appears almost like an appendage to the pinky but is definitely separate from it. The incidence of having a third nipple is also known to occur and is not all that rare. The nipple is clearly visible though it is undeveloped but close examination would clearly show it to be a nipple.
Surely if it was true Chapuys the Spanish ambassador would have mentionned it in his dialogues at the time, instead of it only becoming false proof when George Wyatt claimed it at the end of the sixteenth century. This is a brilliant website. Do you know if Henry ever gave Anne a dog as a gift?
Purquoy was her little dog but not from Henry. She had a wolfhound named Urian and a little lapdog called Purkoy or pourpoi but as for wether they had both been a gift from the king or not is anyones guess as they could have both been given to Anne by her family nobody really knows for sure as no records exist stating one way or another unfortunately to say.
I think the story about the six fingers has retained life after so many years because there was some kernel of truth to it. I suggest she had perhaps a double fingernail. She was known for fashionable long sleeves that may have minimized people seeing her hand. I doubt it was truly a full finger, because that would have been mentioned by contemporaries, especially before she became famous.
Yet, it is not mentioned in correspondences. Emmanuel from Mexico, city. Anne is in it a great deal. This is a very interesting website! On to the topic.
If we take a broader perspective of these times as some of you have already mentioned. We understand that the male sex dominated and women had to follow instruction. With her Uncles support and the Kings attention Anne, caught up in the moment may have acted above her station. Due to Henrys position, changes where not easy and the relationship became more difficult. As a result Anne would constantly make promises to keep the King and her Uncle interested and satisifed.
This is when Henry may have grown tired, and with the influence of Court gossips things began to change. In my opinion Annes Uncle was to blame, power and money hungry, Anne was a pawn in this game who innocently got carried away, upsetting many people.
From the perspective of a King during this period, Henry would not know who to trust in court. Every man out for his own ambissions. This is where I believe she learned most. Henry only gave up what he wanted and he was a selfish person.
He wanted set free from the queen to bare more children because he wanted a son. He never really loved anyone. Woman were bargaining tools for the country. When Anne did not give him a son he was ready to move on to Jane. He plotted to find away to have her killed.
She made the choice to be with a married man and it cost her her life. No good ever comes out from bad. I believe she had some presure from her family because of what they would gain if she became Queen. Elizabeth never married because she did not want a man to rule her country or her.
This is what would have happened. She would have been pushed a side. A virgin she was not but like her mother she watched and learned. No man would chop her head off!!
She aloud her people to worship threre own religion. One of the best rulers. What a wonderful thing freedom of informaion is! Although, in alot of circles, it is the same info that has been ciruclating for years, nearly in fact. From a humanist point of view, i think there are things to take into account, as everyone has cleverly reflected here btw, you are all clever clogs, insightful and interesting firstly, the mentality of roman catholicism towards sex, and towards sin.
Tudor times although seeming liberal sexually, were still heavily oppressed, people with wealth, primarliy men, were conducting multiple and frequent affairs with women, but would have carried the stigma of guilt and self depreciation with them due to the catholic mentality.
Henry was an egotist, having been taught his whole life that he was annointed by God something our current queen elizabeth also takes very seriously His family had only just taken rule, after years of bloodshed. Women had ruled England many times in the past, Beudacea spellt wrong?
Henrys own mother was a beacon of ambiton and self proclamation. But at the tudor time, Roman catholicism had long ago taken hold as the only religion they didnt have the choice we do, and women were considered fodder for mens enjoyment, and predominantly pawns to be used by men for power. Henrys court was filled with social climbers, he was chastised publically for hiring and enobling many many men of humble birth into his court, and one woman stood out, she being Anne Boleyn.
Annes family were notorious social climbers, ambition being a sin according to the catholic church, yet another reason catholicism was clearly becoming outdated. Click for Lindsay Lohan Sex Fakes.

Quatermass is not allowed to accompany him, ordered away. He encounters a tramp Wilfred Brambell who talks about the village that had been on this site before this huge base was built. Quatermass collects up a lot of flints, then drives to the nearby new town of Winnerden Flats, a mass of prefabs built for workers at the base.
One of their 'representatives' is Dawson Michael Brennan who is uncooparative when asked by the professor about the nature of the place. A little girl who "wanders" interests him, she is in the same trance like state as Dillon, and has the same mark on her. Analysis of the fragments, coupled with Quatermass' glimpse of something almost invisible, yield wild theories. Police refuse to help, but then Quatermass is introduced to a civil servant who says the place is researching into synthetic foods.
All he has met to date is "evasion. But it is also gas, and the MP is turned into a shell of a man. Public Relations Officer Ward has visited the plant and as he has a pass is persuaded by Quatermass to take him and the senior civil servant Fowler on a tour of inspection.
They begin at the medical centre, where there is no sign of Dillon. In fact very few people are around at all. The tour makes for the processing unit, where the suspicion is that it is not merely food for human consumption that is the end product.
Ward disappears, and reappears a sorry mess from 'The Dome,' handing Quatermass an object that he had found in there before he dies. On the nearby beach, a picnicking family are ordered off by guards. Meeting resistance they are brought to the plant by armed guards, passing the departing Quatermass. Leo Pugh has examined the rocks and has identified the source of the meteorites in deepest space. But now, thousands of miles away, "they are coming! The Coming Quatermass is certain that the meteorites now hurtling again towards Earth are capable of paralysing the nervous system and instil submission to an alien will.
While Fowler delves the top secret ministry files, he becomes the latest casualty. Quatermass decides to alert the press. He takes Hugh Conrad, a reporter, to a pub used by the workers at Winnerden Flats, and they chat with the McClouds, a couple celebrating their silver wedding. They pick up a few useful titbits, but the people there are nervous of speaking out. Then an" overshot", as they call it, crashes into the building.
Vainly, Quatermass attempts to warn them of their peril. Conrad unwisely handles the fallen object and surely he is succumbing! He manages to phone through his horrific story before dying. The mud flats seem to be swarming with invaders!
Quatermass breaks into the plant disguised as a guard. He stares at the inside of The Dome, swarming with a writhing mass of horrible looking gunge Quatermass Menu. The Frenzy Perhaps this title is optimistic, though "coming down in hundreds," are the meteorites to be transformed in the steel dome to beings that control The Earth itself.
This "nest" is only one of many around the world. A mob storms the plant and amid volleys of bullets, some dodge into the control room to where the pursued Quatermass has also fled. Quatermass reveals what he had seen in the Dome, "I don't believe it. As loudspeakers order them to quit the plant, union leader McCloud, who is operating the oxygen pump, capitulates and takes many of the workers with him, lured by the promise of being shown what is inside the dome.
If this had been made today, no doubt an ocean of red would have filled our screens- instead this horror is merely reported. In the chaos, Quatermass gets away and bumps into Pugh, who is on a rescue mission, or something. Back to the rocket- quickly! Rocket to take off It is The Return of John Dillon, now zombified, who declares, "the rocket base is under our control. The Destroyers "He won't be the same man you knew four days ago.
When Quatermass reasons with the zombie, somehow or rather Dillon responds and permits the rocket to be launched on its mission to destroy the enemy. Consideirng there is no rocket, only scaffolding in the studio, the model behaves creditably, though maybe the drama by centering on the rocket loses the tension of their objective.
Yet the scenes are performed without glorifying these space pioneers, who lurch desperately round their studio capsule. Leo Pugh has been infected! He attempts to shoot Quatermass but finishes whirling off into outer space, "there's no gravity! Having reached his objective, Quatermass, with a cardboard cutout of Pugh wailing comically in the ether, destroys the enemy. The conviction behind the drama has necessarily to be conveyed by the strength of John Robinson's acting, and he carries it out well.
Dillon is released from his spell. Oh- and the world is saved Quatermass Menu. Apeman in Knightsbridge read the popular headlines. At a press conference, Dr Matthew Roney appeals for more time to study the ancient fossils being unearthed. The concept of a five million year old human grabs the public attention. Quatermass is falling out with politicians over the misuse of his rocket project for military purposes to achieve British world domination don't laugh!
His plea for peaceful uses for his rocket falls on very deaf ears. Back at the dig, a lady alerts Roney's assistant Barbara Judd over another discovery- an unexploded bomb. It is not made of metal. Roney calls in the disillusioned Quatermass The Ghosts The officious Col Breen is in charge of operations at the bomb site. Quatermass examines the metal alloy, finding it "harder than diamond.
A complete skull is unearthed. As there is some low level radiation, a clay sample is removed for analysis, and to Roney's dismay, excavations have to stop. Local gossip has it that the nearby house is haunted, and Quatemass explores the building, derelict since Scratch marks are on the wall. Mrs and Mrs Chilcot, neighbours, tell him about "the dreadful sounds" that would emanate from there. Then he chats with Roney about the dating of the bones. With the radioactive all clear, Breen speeds things up with an excavator, again to Roney's intense anger.
The analysis is dismissed by Breen as "absurd," though Quatermass knows that the presence of alien substances in the sample are significant. Barbara Judd brings newspaper cuttings about The Knightsbridge Spooks of Breen has uncovered a huge rocket-like structure.
Inside are strange markings, and a ghost. The tension has been built up well, though perhaps too slowly, interesting that even a contemporary review by DEH admitted that much Quatermass Menu. Imps and Demons The markings inside the rocket are identified as a pentacle, as used in black magic. A soldier panics when he sees a "horrible" figure. Excavations reveal a door, this is made of a heatproof metal. In a newspaper office, the story of the Apeman seems to be fizzling out. Reporter James Fullalove Brian Worth is sent to probe further.
The most powerful cutter fails to penetrate the void inside the rocket. All that happens is eveyone starts shaking. Research by Quatermass reveals the ghost stories are much older than In there were stories of ghosts, and several centuries previously, are found reports of demons in Hobs Lane.
Each time has been after some disturbance of the ground. A small hole mysteriously appears in the metal inside the rocket. Through this, a large eye is seen! More noises when another attempt is made to break into the empty compartment. Inside cobwebs and great demons. Dead demons Quatermass Menu. The Enchanted "Colossal" dead insects inside the bulkhead.
Roney has them hastily sprayed so they do not decompose and then removes them to his museum. Quatermass and reporter Fullalove scour the area where the things had once lived. The latter's newspaper article soon has the public clamouring outside Roney's museum, inside which there is much speculation on the origins of the species. Is Colonel Breen cracking up?
He and Quatermass are called on the carpet to the War Office. The minister is briefed. Quatermass hands out his considered theory that the specimens are Martian invaders from many aeons ago.
You can't blame Breen for being dubious, his idea is that the last war is to blame. His is not scientific though an "ingenious" counter theory that the Minster eagerly latches on to. As a result the area with the rocket is declared safe. Things can be returned to normal. But Barbara suddenly becomes unsconscious and one worker, Sladden, goes beserk as he clears away, and totters wildly out of the rocket into a graveyard where he collapses.
Mysterious underground rumblings underneath his body add to the mystery Quatermass Menu. The Wild Hunt "The whole place was shaking. The two of them go to the church where Sladden is recovering.
He becomes wildly excited when questioned about what he had witnessed. Col Breen is attempting to substantiate his theory, by checking with Germany over the identity of 'their' rocket. Quatermass knows, however, that it is a throwback of the Martian invasion of Earth aeons ago.
I'm not sure I knew if I believed either of 'em! That's probably the fascination of the story. Roney has created an incredible invention, an optic encephalograph, that can depict the imaginings of the brain, and wants to use it to discover what Sladden has seen. As he is in too agitated a state, Quatermass tries to recreate what Sladden saw.
But Barbara is more receptive and a violent reaction sweeps around the area as her mind records the scene. Later a tape is shown to the sceptical minister and Col Breen. It is "the cleansing of the hive," and indeed looks dramatic and "most serious," though the doubters put the whole thing down to hallucination. At the rocket site, Breen delivers his speech on tv designed to calm the nation, but it backfires when there are explosions and Lord knows what else Quatermass Menu. A technician is electrocuted in the hull.
This was no accident insists Quatermass, falling out yet again with Colonel Breen, who is preparing for a live tv broadcast to reassure the nation. In a nearby pub, people are watching the tv screen which suddenly goes blank. Viewers are not shown the chaos at the rocket site, ethereal rumblings, then panic. A stampede along the street. Roney drags Quatermass to the now empty pub. At the site Fullalove takes photos while Breen sits amid the ruins mesmerised, impressively baffled.
In the haunted house Potter searches. Roney reckons he knows how to end this madness, and as Quatermass is more in tune, he will execute the plan. This is a success, though not without fatality.
When it is all over, Quatermass delivers an ominous warning speech Quatermass Menu. The way he puts every woman on a pedestal and treats her like a rare flower. The BBC gave this their best shot in an attempt to emulate the fantasy that made The Avengers so unique.
It's nice this series has received some sort of recognition following its dvd revival, although it's very hit and miss with a few absolutely brilliant stories but also a number of scripts that are best forgotten The surviving stories: There were three series shown from to , with a revival in So it must have been reasonably successful, though largely forgotten these days. It is certainly lacking any lightness of touch, a serious, almost grim, account of forensic police work, sometimes quite absorbing, but you do wish Marius Goring's character could be just a little more human.
I suppose he's a typical anti-hero, though hero is entirely the wrong word for this good doctor with but a hint of dry humour. The Husband - conclusion 3: The Witness, part 1 Hypothesis Though this two part story becomes progressively more absorbing, this first half would have been tighter as a half hour story.
A fourth murder in quick succession. All the victims are girls aged 19 to 25, all killed in their homes. First knocked out, then stripped and gagged. The motive appears to be some sort of punishment rather than lust. Cameras follow Viv, a fiery redhead as she shops in a supermarket then goes home. Her gossipy phone conversation is interrupted by a knock on her door.
Posing as an official, the killer gains entrance and swoops immediately. Procedure as before, only this time Viv's friend on the phone can hear something is wrong. She dials , the police swoop, but the attacker just succeeds in escaping on his motor scooter. Then we observe him in his bedsit, fastidious in his obsession with cleanliness. A witness identifies a man who was proably following Viv. Another, Mary, who lives in the same block of flats, also identifies Viv's visitor, Jimmy Porter he was asking for.
Dr Hardy mulls over the Case with his wife. He builds up a possible portrait of the maniac, all guesswork but good guesswork- effeminate, good looking, and strong. An arts student, in his early 20s from a broken home. Though he protests innocence, he certainly fits in with Hardy's theories. Viv, dangerously ill in hospital, is just about able to identify her attacker, though the ordeal is far too much for her.
Both scenes are well observed in detail, though the best follows. Despite Hardy's protestations, Ingram is immediately interviewed by the police inspector John Collin. Viv remembers the supermarket manager looking at her, and a good looking stranger inside the shop whom she quite fancied.
He was in the identity parade but she hadn't seen him on that day. We reach the crux, the attack, "haven't I seen you somewhere before? Mary identifies Ingram as being in the flats that day. Hardy has pieced together a supermarket bag that Ingram had burned, it is from that supermarket. The manager describes a youth whom he thought might have been watching Viv, "staring" at her. He identifies Ingram in a parade.
All the evidence seems to suggest Ingram's guilt, this is the interest of the story. However what follows is unfair. Ingram writes down a statement denying any knowledge of the girl. Cameras follow another girl being followed by a man. Ingram admits he had been in the shop, stealing, and had been at Viv's flats coincidentally to see his friend Jimmy Porter. From his evidence, Hardy now concludes, "there is nothing to connect him and her.
In the river next to Houghton's cottage retreat, Williams finds his boss' bloodstained jacket in a drifting punt. No sign of a body but instead of phoning the police he calls in Dr John Hardy to investigate, fearful lest company shares plummet at the news of Houghton's disappearance. Mrs Houghton Jean Marsh has no inkling of any accident and perturbed by the news that police have not been informed, contacts Inspector Fleming.
Hardy searches the cottage, then the river. Bloodstains indoors, and a possibility that the kitchen floor has been recently cleaned. Any initial injury, Hardy concludes, would have happened here.
The boat has scratches on the side and some hair. This is later shown to be from a dog. And the jacket has two different blood groups on it. Hardy is mystified why some clues have been left, apparently carelessly, while other fingerpritns and the evidence on the kitchen floor have been concealed. Though no fisherman, he is also intrigued why Houghton had taken two fishing rods with him.
The mystery is partly solved when old Greg admits he had borrowed Houghton's boat, he'd also borrowed Houghton's fishing rod, he's a poacher. His old dog had jumped out the boat and is later found drowned.
Though the rod is a trout rod, it was a salmon fly, a yellow morrish. The other rod had been taken by Houghton on a trip to Ireland. He returns in time for a vital board meeting, his reappearance part of his scheme to gain control of the company. He is almost guilty of wasting police time, but where's the proof? The author has led us, and the police, a merry dance To The Expert. Prof Hardy examines the corpse. This information is relayed to Inspector Fleming by his assistant Charles Oakley, who is struggling to make ends meet with his wife Phyllis Meg Wynn-Owen.
Suddenly becoming reminscent of a s film, there's a cabaret turn by Lois Lane at the night club where the boss is reluctant to reveal who Mandy had been with, apart from Oakley, who had used her as a minor informer. She was a hostess here, and had a six month old child, father unknown.
One man who has accompanied her home is traced, William Lever. He claims that though he had indeed offered her a lift, once they got outside the club, she had been picked up by a man driving a Cortina. Mrs Webster of the Adoption Society explains Mandy had been having second thoughts about having her child adopted. The name of the father is not on record, but Mrs Webster is sure he is a policeman. Now the plot is clear, Oakley owns a Cortina and this is examined thoroughly by Prof Hardy.
Underneath are discovered human hair, wool fibre and a wide scattering of blood stains. It's the best scene. To her, he offers to resign from the force, so that they can have a better home life.
However it has got beyond that. His questioning of Oakley, in Fleming's presence, soon forces the admittance, "it just happened with Mandy," his relationship that is. She had wanted him to get a divorce. He had picked her up that night, they'd argued in a quiet spot, near to where she was later found.
In a temper she had walked off, he'd driven after her and accidentally knocked her down. Hardy tries reconciling the evidence with Oakley's statement.
Perry goes over the story in fine detail with the accused. Oakley is arrested but denies murder. He takes it on himself to tell Mrs Oakley in another satisfying if sad scene. Phyllis breaks down, she did know about her husband's affair, though the identity of the woman was unknown to her The Expert.
Your Money for My Life On a dual carriageway, almost empty of vehicles, a car overtakes what traffic there is, and speeds down the outside lane, veers into a bridge, the driver hurled through the windscreen. The terrible news is relayed to his wife and children Brian and Angela.
But Lynch wants to know how such a crash could have happened to a driver who'd never had any accidents before. Was Haskins worried about his son's latest student protests? Lynch engages Dr Hardy to examine the forensic evidence, which has seemed to indicate only a normal if tragic accident. The main puzzle is why the usually reliable Haskins had turned up late for his office work that morning.
The reason for his delay becomes the focal point of the story. Dr Hardy's examination of Haskins' clothing reveals several strands of hair, black white and blonde and lipstick on a handkerchief. The make-up is traced to a cosmetics company that specialises in bespoke products and Inspector Fleming is persuaded to open a police inquiry and contact this company.
Over customers have used this product, Angela one of them, but she certainly never saw her father that day. But the trail leads to a friend of Angela's, Penny Sparrow, a model who demonstrates the powder in question. She provides the story of Peter Haskins' other life. To conclude, Dr Hardy goes over the evidence with Lynch in a typically vague s conclusion The Expert. Flesh and Blood Ten year old Jacky Carr is bullied on his way home from school.
The purpose of this scene isn't apparent until the end. His father Albert Dudley Foster and "gone to seed" mother Jeanette Ann Lynn take him to the doctor to see about the annoying grit in his eye. Albert unburdens himself privately to Dr Hardy's wife about his sudden doubts that Jacky is his child. It's too long a scene but he wants a blood test to confirm his suspicions. Dr Hardy does check the blood. Mother is apparently O group, so is father. So is Jacky, though that doesn't prove anything of course.
The mother-in-law from hell Marjorie Rhodes at her best doesn't help the growing tensions between husband and wife.
Albert has decided that Jeanette's former boss Michael William Lucas must be the father. He attacks him, nothing very violent, but it's enough to get Michael to complain to the police. Angst ridden Albert is now arguing with his wife. There was never anyone else she cries. Another more advanced type of blood test might resolve the issue for now Albert is getting ever more neurotic. Another row with mother-in-law only makes it more like the dreaded Wednesday Play.
The new tests produce an "impossible" result. Unexpected and not at all convincing. About a baby stolen ten years before. That brings the police into the story and Jacky's future looks bleak as he is placed in an orphanage. That's where we go back to the opening unpleasant scene, for here it seems Jacky is going to be happy.
It is more than flesh and flood can stand to swallow this story The Expert. A Way to Die January 3rd In a giant pigsty where pigs are fattened, a young man is found locked inside, trampled to death. Head pigman Ronald discovers his corpse. Not a lot of clothing or personal belongings left, the pigs have eaten almost everything they can. A scrap of scarf identifies him as a university student, and he is found to be David Lewis a second year undergraduate, known to Dr Hardy's wife as someone who had once attempted suicide.
David's student friends put up a wall of silence, in a none too convincing scene. David's diary is found but "it's all Greek to me," for it is written in Russian and other languages.
Sendall, the piggery manager was allegedly staying at a London hotel on the night of the tragedy. Yet he never occupied his room. He admits he'd been covering up a dirty weekend. A yokel named Bennett Windsor Davies is found to be the owner of the shotgun that fired the pellet at David. But he says he lent it to Ron, who had wanted to scare off the students.
That brings on a confession from David's girl friend that they had planned to release the pigs, all to do with animal rights. Ron admits borrowing the gun, then says Snedall fired the shot. Sendall in his turn admits leaving his dirty weekend in order to deal with the students. At the piggery Dr Hardy demonstrates to Inspector Fleming the evidence that supports his conclusions about David's death. The best characters in this story are David's grieving parents, a fine study.
In the rain a young hippy is hitching a lift. Another girl joins him, but he quickly leaves in an empty bus. The driver comes to a halt on the A when he sees a corpse by the roadside. They recall an MGB passing them driving erratically a while earlier and police promptly trace this vehicle. The owner Alan Stafford Jonathan Newth is detained. Dr Hardy examines his car, noting a dent on his front bumper, though nothing inside to indicate a struggle. We see what the police don't, a Cortina driver named Brian Mike Pratt with a scratch on his face.
It makes the story suddenly pointless as Hardy gives Stafford a detailed examination. Maybe it shows that police work sometimes involves wrong turnings.
The dead girl was Claire, who had been making for London, "one of her daft ideas," to join her poet boyfriend. Cause of death, a fractured skull, but the question is, did she fall or was she pushed?
There's a well done scene as Hardy discusses with his wife about hitchhikers, whether she'd pick one up, if so whom she would, whom she wouldn't. Another quite pointless scene follows. Another sports car driver picks up a student from Warwick University. He makes a pass she struggles, but he does let her out of his car. Hardy has discovered lime on Claire's clothing, but what type of lime? Slake lime, cement which suggests a building site.
The name Brian crops up but all this science has proved unnecessary. Brian's conscience has weighed him down and he confides in his mum who's not sympathetic but ultimately very worried for her son. She wants to concoct a tale, but he insists on informing the police. He'd given this "beautiful girl " a lift. I touched her," after a struggle "she was gone.
The final scene is one that is very unhelpful also, must have been there to fill in time. The same sports car driver, not Alan, picks up another girl. I could have provided several more satisfying and honest endings than this lazy one The Expert. There's "a car but no body," the crashed car had been stolen from probation officer Davis Jones Edward Fox. Inspector Fleming questions Jones as to whether any of his clients might have stolen the car.
One possibility is the pathetic Norman Hobson, who can only produce the alibi that he was "at home in bed. It's evident from their sometimes philosophical discussion that Davis Jones has an unorthodox approach to his work, "a dilettanti," Flemings calls him, though he gets results.
Escaped convict Jock had been pally with Hobson and evidence connects him with stealing the car. Hardy works out the corpse had been carried in the back of this car to the bridge, traces of an expensive raincoat are evident, suggesting that it must be one belonging to Jones.
Jones resigns his job. He admits giving the coat to Hobson, who claims he has "flogged" it. It seems probable that Jock is the dead man and his corpse had been tipped over the bridge onto a passing train.
A goods perhaps, "try Pontypool or Crewe. He sees he had been used. A very immature officer, you wonder how he got appointed. The final scene in prison is very pathetic The Expert Menu.
Part 1 The Wife Well drawn characters, even if this two parter is too drawn out. She'd been so pleased after fifteen years to have this child, but her dilemma is, who's the father? There follows the familiar angst of the eternal triangle, is it her husband Harry Anthony Bate or her boyfriend Michael Jackson James Maxwell?
Though Harry's a cold fish, we do see him enjoying an evening out with business colleague Bill Geoffrey Palmer at a strip club. Too gratuitous though apparently "not much to write home about.
That decides Ruth to make a private appointment with Dr John Hardy, who as expected has a slightly high handed approach, wanting her to see the consequences of her action.
Her idea is that she will live with the real father even though she loves only Michael. Blood samples taken, result: Michael could be the father.
However unless Harry's blood group is ascertained, Hardy cannot say whether Harry might also be the father. Ruth is very reluctant to tell her husband anything, so borrows his hankie. She awaits that result anxiously. Dr Hardy prefaces his comments with the rider that this hankie might have been borrowed, so could she be absolutely sure the sample on it is his?
All Hardy will state is the person who used that hankie could not be the father. To be more positive, Harry's blood sample must be taken.
However she decides there's sufficent proof and leaves Harry for Michael. She's all for ducking a confrontation, but Michael is honourable or maybe stupid enough to talk to Harry as he comes home from work. There's a scene outside Ruth's late home which ends in blows.
Now Harry is the one to consult Hardy. Sample taken, the evidence is that he cannot be the baby's dad. A postman finds the corpse. Ruth Fletcher is distraught Ann Lynn gives us a fine study in grief. Dr Hardy conducts a post mortem.
Chief Inspector Fleming questions Harry who is quite open about the confrontation but states he left Michael "standing," adding, "he can't be dead. It bears out what we watched. Harry admits he struck Michael, but "I didn't mean to hurt him.
The question is, did he intend to cause his enemy grievous bodily harm? That's what the defence refute, pleading provocation. So why did Harry strike him? Prof Hardy gives his evidence, the prosecution manage to hint that it might have been deliberate, even if Hardy won't budge from his opinion.
A nervous Jo Hardy gives her account about the paternity of the baby. She has to mention Harry's threat to "kill" Michael, but believed it only an idle notion so had not reported him to the police. Harry comes over as the injured party, in the light of his wife's adultery. Carefully staged questioning, and though he admits he hated Michael, his rival's taunt of impotence was what had made him strike the blow. The law states she is not permitted to testify against her husband. Cedric A typically bleak drama of the era, of an angst ridden loner, well portrayed by Peter Jeffrey.
Cedric is unwrapping a parcel, inside a rare book, a first edition by Sir Walter Raleigh- phew! So engaged by it is he, that he consults his doctor, Jo Hardy, since he has no one else to share his find with.
