Hi folks,

Confusing, huh.

A few random thoughts.

1. Contrary to some speculation, I very much doubt that Janice Weston was going to meet a lover.
If, as seems likely, she was heading to the manor...

I take it the answer is ''not much''.

It is as if Hanratty just materialised in the sweetshop. If not an early audition for Doctor Who, another aspect of his alibi to lack credibility.

Hi again Herlock - with you having taken things into the balance, would you now be prepared to find Wallace guilty of murder?
