First Aired: October 3, 2004

P.D. James' Scotland Yard Cdr. Adam Dalgliesh (Martin Shaw) investigates "Death in Holy Orders" in this two-part puzzler set in a coastal seminary where a student is found dead on the beach, buried under a mound of sand. St. Anselm's, an elite---and decidedly elitist---institution, is a financial drag on the diocese, which wants to shut it down and sell off its artworks. Seminary authorities are resisting, but, curiously, they stand to benefit financially from its closure.
