Great post Caz, I would just like to add would he seriously kill just a week later using the same ruse after narrowly escaping the last time?
I fear the fearless psychopath argument is being brushed up as I type, so Fish can try and give us the usual brush off.
I seem to recall someone arguing that Lechmere killed again that quickly, and in Hanbury Street, to get Robert Paul suspected. So after failing so miserably to introduce a phantom killer who narrowly escaped from Buck's Row, he ordered Serial Killing For Dummies but it evidently didn't arrive in time, so he shifted the blame onto the bloke who arrived after him, despite this being another physical impossibility according to Inspector Fish.
I'm off to inspect a steak or two - very rare with peppercorn sauce, chips and a smooth Italian red.
