I really appreciated how they updated the story. Doing some digging around I can see why they didn't just do a straight adaptation here. It certainly plays better. I liked the debate scene well enough, though silly it established the characters well enough.

This one didn’t make sense but I did like how viewers (well, me anyway) were led to assume the illegitimate offspring was male. But to accuse the housekeeper in front of her husband and son? Or the doctor blabbing about a patient’s medical history? Or that the murderer virtually disappeared from the story after the first scene which led me to think they had died in the intervening years. The best part was seeing a very young Neil Stuke in his first role. (Silk was one of my favorite shows)
