There’s been a murder – said in my best Jim Taggart impression… or should that be, “There’s bin a murdah”? I should explain. It was the early hours of this morning when I woke up and couldn’t get back to sleep. There is nothing worse than trying to get to sleep and failing, so to take my mind off sleep, I turned the television on quietly so as not to disturb any of the sleeping bears. The BBC News Channel was telling the story of a murder case from 70 years ago aboard the cruise ship Durban Castle. Fresh evidence was casting doubt on the original conviction of a deck steward for the ghastly deed. The victim was a young actress thought to have been murdered on-board the ship but may actually have died from natural causes, it is now being claimed.
