Book Review By Steve Thornton: “One Foot in the Grave”, By Author Timothy Sheard
CWA Gold Dagger winner Peter Dickinson is back: Now-retired Scotland Yard superintendent James Pibble isn't about to go quietly into the night - not when there's a murder case or two or three to solve At Flycatchers, a well-to-do nursing home watched over by no-nonsense nurse Jenny, one-time detective James Pibble shuttles between his nothing-to-live-for present and memories of the crimes he's solved - or failed to. He's roused from his listless existence when he discovers a dead body on top of the water tower. Security guard George Tosca isn't the only one at Flycatchers who has met his maker a bit too abruptly. There have been other suspicious deaths in the last three years, including those of military man Sir Archibald Gunter and Bertie Foster-Banks, an inveterate gambler and shareholder in the home. The arrival of a woman in black sets off a sinister chain of events, and before he knows it, Pibble is on the case.
The show ran for six series of six episodes each. There were also nine specials including two shorts for Comic Relief , first screened from 4 January to 20 November on BBC One and subsequently repeated both on the BBC and thereafter on satellite channels such as Gold. While the programme has always been shown after the 9pm watershed on the BBC, other channels have sometimes shown it in earlier slots, with minor cuts.
