Helen West Casebook

Includes:Helen West: Deep Sleep (2002) Helen West: Shadow Play (2002) Helen West: A Clear Conscience (2002) Helen West: Deep Sleep Amanda Burton stars in this British TV movie as Helen West, the plucky provincial police medical examiner created by mystery novelist Frances Fyfield. Convalescing from surgery, Helen tackles the case of a pharmacist's wife who died under suspicious circumstances. Taking into consideration the heroine's wobbly physical condition, plus the fact that the victim's husband (Dermot Crowley) is very popular and extremely well connected politically, Helen's boyfriend, Chief Superintendent Bailey (Conor Mullen), advises her to drop the case -- as if that would actually stop her. Originally telecast May 6, 2002 on Britain's ITV1, Helen West: Deep Sleep made its American cable-TV bow courtesy of A&E on June 8, 2002. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Helen West: Shadow Play No synopsis available. Helen West: A Clear Conscience The third feature-length installment of the British detective series Helen West, A Clear Conscience was based on a novel by Frances Fyfield. On the verge of burnout, overworked Crown Prosecutor Helen West (Amanda Burton) finds solace and comfort in renovating her cozy but rather run-down garden apartment. But despite her efforts to escape the pressures of her job, Helen is inexorably drawn into a murder case involving her housekeeper Cath Boyce (Lynda Steadman). The ensuing intrigue -- which involves domestic abuse, a horrible secret, and a second murder -- not only wears Helen's nerves to a frazzle, but also seriously jeopardizes her romance with the detective on the case, Chief Superintendent Geoffrey Bailey (Connor Mullen). Originally telecast in England over the ITV network Helen West: A Clear Conscience made its American debut over the A&E cable service on December 7, 2002. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
