Time for Murder (1985)

Time for Murder was a British anthology series which ran for six episodes in late 1985. The series featured six unrelated 50-minute stories from six renown writers, all with different casts, but also obviously all shot on the same redressed sets.

The following weapons were used in the television series Time for Murder:


Belgian Pocket Revolver

A Belgian Pocket Revolver on unknown caliber is featured in "The Murders at Lynch Cross" (E2).

Gun cabinet

"The Murders at Lynch Cross" (E2) has a brief shot of a gun cabinet in the parlor of the Scott-Forbes bed and breakfast.

There's at least two flintlocks and two revolvers. The revolver on the bottom right appears to be a Webley RIC.
