1028 :35x01 - Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Silk Stocking

Oct/23/2005
Masterpiece Theatre

In the Premiere Episode of Season 35, Masterpiece Theatre presents a new incarnation of an old fan favorite. When the body of a young girl is discovered, police assume she's a prostitute. However, the silk stocking wedged in her throat suggests otherwise. Sherlock Holmes deduces that the body is actually that of the missing debutante, Lady Alice Pentney. Oddly, she is dressed in shabby clothes, and her garments from the night she disappeared are gone. These later turn up on the body of another debutante, Lady Georgiana, who has been killed in the same manner. The game is afoot and Holmes begins searching for answers. Will Lady Georgiana's missing clothes appear on the next victim? And what about the shabby outfit discovered on Lady Alice? Did it belong to an as-yet-unknown first victim? "The first victim always tells the detective more than any other," says Holmes, who sends Dr. Watson to the graveyard to disinter a promising candidate. Meanwhile, Watson's fiancee, the American psychoanalyst Mrs. Vandeleur, steers Holmes to a plausible motive for the slayer. Armed with this psychological insight, Holmes baits a clever trap. But the killer outwits him and seizes yet another victim, who is doomed unless Holmes and Watson can track him to his lair.

1039 :35x12 - My Family and Other Animals

Apr/09/2006
Masterpiece Theatre

Escaping the dreary wet weather of 1930s England, the eccentric and bohemian Durrell family uproot and ship themselves off to the sun-drenched Greek island of Corfu. The ragtag Durrell family - consisting of 12 year old budding naturalist and intrepid biologist Gerald; acne-infested Margo; gun-loving Leslie; overbearing intellectual Larry; and their sympathetic widowed mother - experience the joys of living a life of freedom and adventure. With the help of larger-than-life taxi driver Spiro, who has something of a soft spot for Mother, the family moves to a succession of different, fantastically colored villas across Corfu. While Gerald explores the glorious landscape, the wildlife it has to offer and befriends the local population; Mother has other ideas. Fearing her son is growing too wild, she is determined that he receive an education. Gerald's moral as well as more conventional education is put in the hands of three very different young men, two of whom are more distracted by Margo's flirtatiousness than by Gerald's zoological enthusiasm.

First of all there's George who loses out to Margot's Turkish boyfriend; and then Peter, a caddish young man who is happy to leave Gerald writing by himself while he pursues Margo at any cost. Of more lasting emotional importance for Gerald, though, is Theodore Stephanides, a biologist and witty raconteur who is young Gerald's link not only to the marine and insect life that Corfu has to offer, but also to its rich cultural beauty. Spending so much time in the garden and fields watching one branch of the animal kingdom in its natural habitat allows Gerald to learn more incisively about the habits of an altogether different species: his family.
