An anonymous note. A straightforward case, so Detective Chief Inspector Wexford (George Baker) and his grim-faced assistant, Detective Inspector Burden (Christopher Ravenscroft), assume.
The man's name is Smith, his victim is Anita Margolis. Investigations reveal that wealthy, flighty and immoral, perhaps she had invited the crime.
After all, nice girls don't bring lovers home in the afternoon. And nice girls keep their money safe in places.
But you can't have a murder without a body. Or can you?
I watched the TV adaptation of Wolf to the Slaughter on the internet in 2011 and was really engrossed in it and I was very impressed with it as well, so much so that I decided to collect this story and the other TVS-televised Wexford stories on video last year (2012).
Originally shown on ITV in four 60-minute episodes (including advert breaks), Wolf to the Slaughter was edited into two feature-length episodes for the 1995 VHS release from MTM Enterprises and IMC Video Limited that I purchased (the first two episodes edited into one on the first video tape, and the next two episodes edited into one on the second video tape). It's such a shame that the TVS-televised Wexford stories from 1987 to 1992 aren't available on DVD due to rights issues with programming from the TVS archive, in which most of it is controlled by Disney.Read more ›
Wexford and Mike work brilliant together, also they are believable, as are all the plots.
Enjoyed each and every one of the videos.
Hope all will arrive on DVD soon.
George Baker is a nice man and a great actor.
The plots have lots of twist and turns, also surprises.
