His Final Performance
Famous Shakespearean actor, Richard Carrington, thought his final performance was as King Lear in London. In fact, it was in the High Court in Glasgow on a charge of murder.
A STORY OF LOVE, HATE, HYPOCRISY, JEALOUSY & MURDER
BOB BUCHANAN HAD BEEN the kind of Detective Chief
Inspector admired and trusted by all. So when he was elevated to
Superintendent there were genuine congratulations all round. And
his record remained unblemished until the day he left the force.Now
retired for three years, and comfortably settled in their downsized
flat in the West End of Glasgow, he was surprised and puzzled to
receive a letter addressed to ‘Superintendent Robert Buchanan’.
Picking it up from the hall carpet, he made his way to the kitchen
where his wife, Janet, was putting last night’s crockery and cutlery
into the dishwasher.
‘How about this, Janet?’ he said as he entered the kitchen. ‘The
BBCare doing a TV series called ‘FamousCases of the Past’ and they
want to interview me. They say I’ll be on the first programme and
its theme will be ‘Judges versus Juries’.That’s close to my heart. But I
wonder if they don’t realize I’m retired.’
Janet closed the dishwasher and pressed the buttons as Bob
handed her the letter. She walked to the kitchen table, put on her
glasses and started reading it. They sat opposite each other, Bob
waiting in silence for his wife’s comments.
