Death in the Clinic (#111H) Duration: 54:12 STEREO TVPG

A body found floating in the pool of a luxury cosmetic clinic presents a complex case for DI Poole's team.

How could the victim have drowned herself? And why would she make a cup of the world's most expensive tea yet only drink half of it? There is only one conclusion - Valerie Dupree was murdered.
