This week: Angela Baddeley as Miss Pye investigates the case of "Put Out the Light"
Jamaica Court is the home of Anthea Vine, rich, autocratic and powerful. Her tyranny embraces not only her adopted family but also her servants and business rivals. The pleasure she derives from her power is mixed with fears that haunt her day and night. For she is aware that many hate her and many wish her dead. She tries to dismiss these fears as groundless - raised in her imagination by the emotional tensions ever present in the house.
Miss Pye sees the reality of the dangers that surround the victim and tries to warn her of them.
