"The Hippopotamus". Excellent British Mystery.

Based on a novel by Stephan Fry, it's sort of an off-beat English mystery. A down on his luck, boozing poet loses his job as a critic. He's hired by his niece to investigate a country estate where miracles occur.

Read the rest of my review and check out the trailer:

It's streaming on Netflix

5. Yes, very good.

Roger Allum was excellent. I only recall seeing him in the Endeavor series as Detective Inspector Fred Thursday before this film. I assume that his narration was the script as written by Fry, and it was just wonderful. Quite an unusual plot.

Thanks for the suggestion!
