The Ice House 9.00pm BBC1
When the adaptation of Minette Walters's eerie novel The Sculptress burst on to our screens last year, critics and viewers alike delighted in the discovery of a new source of television crime thrillers. There's further cause for celebration tonight with the arrival of a new, two-part mystery that is even more chilling than its predecessor.
Kitty Aldridge, Frances Barber and Penny Downie star as friends Anne Cattrell, Diana Goode and Phoebe Maybury, who live together in splendid isolation at Streech Grange, much to the disgust of the villagers who are convinced the women are lesbians. When the Grange's gardener discovers a body in its disused ice house, a ten-year-old murder investigation is reopened by Chief Inspector George Walsh (Corin Redgrave), who is convinced that the corpse must be Phoebe Maybury's husband who disappeared a decade earlier. As usual, nothing is quite as it seems.
