On a gloomy November afternoon in 1966, 49-year-old Dr Helen Davidson, a beloved GP, was bashed to death in Hodgemoor Wood while birdwatching. Her body was found the following day and as soon as news of her murder hit her hometown the rumour mill began to churn. Who would kill the beloved doctor? Did she stumble across something she shouldn’t have seen? Or was the murder personally motivated – what was at play: jealousy, vengeance perhaps? To this day, the case with more suspects than convictions, remains unsolved. It is a true murder mystery, a whodunnit that played out more like an Agatha Christie mystery than a real-life crime.
