Magpie Murders (PBS) Rated NR

An editor is drawn into a web of intrigue when she goes looking for a famous author’s last chapter. Based on the book by Anthony Horowitz. Starring Conleth Hill, Lesley Manville, and Tim McMullan.

This is another brilliant storytelling by Masterpiece. It’s wonderfully acted with different actors taking on multiple roles due to flashing time periods. The show flips back and forth between the book and the modern day with the editor going to look for the missing ending. At times these flips work, but sometimes it makes you wonder where they are in the story. The characters all have depth and interest that pulls you into the story, both stories. This is a series that is worth the watch.
