Murdoch is the one who was supposed to be the originator of finger marks aka finger prints.
However, in the second part of the season finale episode, they found the key in Mcworthy and held it in handkerchiefs to stop finger marks being wiped off. But, if they had checked for marks on the key, they would have found Miss Hart’s and the conspiracy may have been uncovered.
As Miss Hart, the new coroner, is guilty of corruption, at the very least, I hope that in the next series, she is somehow exposed and she is either put in jail or hung.
And, most importantly, the next coroner is a man. After all, they have had:
- Dr Ogden
- Dr Grace
- Dr Ogden AGAIN
- The first coloured lady
- Miss Hart
