“In part three, Penelope's sisters learn of the pact to write a book between Peter Dingle, culpable homeopath Francine Scrayen, and Penelope Dingle. The penny drops as to Peter Dingle's bizarre behaviour - watching his wife die. Peter was to become famous. Dingle himself, described by the coroner as a strong, influential personality who played a significant role in his wife's choices and ongoing self sabotage, appears to feign shock that he could have been misled. He seems to pretend to remember little. Worse, he lays the blame on Penelope by arguing that helping her to see the truth would be a breach of trust, and that her will to continue overrode his ability to save her life. In this episode…we meet his new wife - a homeopath.” [13:59min video]
