A perfect match... | but what do you make of this?

The mark of a stirrup iron.

- Then it was mud from a riding boot. | - Yes.

From a boot with | a very distinctive scar on it.

That piece of fresh mud was stuck | between the sole and heel

of someone's riding boot...

...someone who visited Mr Enderby | just before he died.

The murderer?

We can't call him that, since it | hasn't been decided he was murdered.

True, but when Inspector Craddock has | considered your theory...

Inspector Craddock has assured me

that that is exactly | what he is not going to do.

No, Jim,

you and I must pursue | this trail entirely on our own.

Then where shall we begin?

We must find out who benefits | by the death.

We'll have to wait until the will | is published in the newspapers.

Not necessarily.

- That's the lot, Fred. | - Tea's up. I'll see you inside.


Fortune favours the brave.

I beg your pardon?

That dray under the very window.

This calls for a certain amount of | ingenuity. We have to get up there.

What if anyone sees us?

We're screened from | the high street by the archway.

We're taking a grave risk | of seeming inquisitive.

A calculated one, Mr Stringer. | On we go.

I trust something pithy | will be said after all this.

Oh dear... Here we are...

"...and though it is with some regret

that I finally satisfy | the greed of my relatives,

I nevertheless do devise and bequeath | that my entire estate

be divided equally between: | My fourth cousin, George Crossfield,

in order that he no longer need | borrow from his clients' funds.

My niece, Rosamund Shane, in order | that she may support her husband

in the style to which | he would like to be accustomed.

To my nephew, Hector Enderby, | in order that he may be able

to afford to hunt every day | rather than once a week -
