Poirot: The Veiled Lady

The open grand slam in Wimbledon is our favorite of the 4 grand slams tennis tournaments of the year.  While we have structured a few Fright Nights around the others from time to time, this is the one that we always mark with something at least vaguely British or at least tennis related.  This particular episode actually takes place, in part, in the village of Wimbledon, which Captain Hastings seems to think is a "big place." (see clip above).  Fred Perry is actually mentioned in the episode as making the tourism is Wimbledon much worse--this gives a rather shocking reminder that before Scotsman Andy Murray won the slam in recent years how long it had been between UK winners of that beloved British tournament.  So this Friday is dedicated to UK related mysteries--a few set in former colonies, chose at random from a good old fashioned grab bag. And yes, this one was chosen at random, I swear!  It must be fate.
