Watching the Detectives #2

Another familiar trope reverted to by tired scriptwriters of TV detective series is the Second Wine Glass gambit.

There are two wine glasses on the table in the murdered woman’s apartment. Someone has obviously visited her the previous night, someone she probably knew…

So, there were three wine glasses on my kitchen table this morning, obvious evidence that I had two visitors last night, a regular party. Who could they be, I wonder?

Why does it never occur to TV detectives that, like me, the victim

hasn’t done

the fucking

washing-up

for two days?
