Who-Dun-It: An Embarrassment of Murder (S1EP5 ITV Tues 16 Sep 1969, Amanda Reiss, John Barcroft)



Who-Dun-It An Embarrassment of Murder ITV 1969 Amanda Reiss

In An Embarrassment of Murder we meet sophisticated and highly intelligent criminologist Cynthia Park. Cynthia has been invited a weekend party at the country house of a prominent London publisher. When murder strikes Cynthia puts her detecting hat on and discovers that she has a multitude of suspects to choose from.

This was the first of four appearances for Cynthia Park. Amanda Reiss who played her is not a known name these days and aside from a prominent part in Edward and Mrs Simpson in 1978, Who-Dun-It is probably her most high profile role. Down the cast list there was a small role for Only Fools and Horses star John Challis.
