The Helen West Casebook (2002)
Adapted from the best-selling mystery books by Frances Fyfield, these three feature-length exploits from "Helen West," following the British medical examiner (Amanda Burton), are sure to thrill devoted suspense fans. First, there's no "Deep Sleep" deeper than death--the state in which a pharmacist's wife is found and the puzzle that leads West up the rungs of power to get at the truth. Next, some lethal "Shadow Play" ensues when files start vanishing from Helen's office and a new suitor complicates her personal life. Finally, Helen's romance with colleague Geoffrey Bailey (Connor Mullen) is threatened as her housekeeper gets involved in a murder case, in "A Clear Conscience." With Nicholas Woodeson, Jessica Oyelowo. 4 3/4 hrs. total on three discs. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; biographies.
