In The Counsellor Estate Agent Richard Price is accused of stealing an antique silver photo frame whilst on a business visit to the home of Stella Winrose. Although it initially seems like a trivial case it soon becomes clear that there is much more going on. The recently widowed Mrs Winrose (the fabulous Marjorie Yates) actually makes it plain that Price was trying to start a relationship with her (even though he is married) and had been on several outings with him. Once Mrs Winrose made it plain she did not want to get involved Price is alleged to have taken the picture frame (which is also alleged to contain a picture of Price and Mrs Winrose together).
Price’s defence is that he was merely working in his capacity as a councillor for the recently bereaved (working in a voluntary capacity with his local church) and that Mrs Winrose has made the allegation up to get back at him for rebuffing her.
The case for Mr Price falls apart when his daughter Dora takes the stand.
Features a new opening title sequence of people going about their daily lives with the “I swear by almighty God that the evidence I give” etc runs across the screen. Much stronger imagery than the first season titles. There is the same excellent them tune though.
