Investigation at a British Boys School

I recall seeing this mystery film in the 80s, possibly on PBS, perhaps on MYSTERY! Then again it may have been a rental tape.

At any rate, it involved a murder investigation being conducted at a British boys school. In the only scene I can remember, one of the detectives went into an attic storage space, only to have the door pulled shut, locking him in while a fire was set down below, filling the room with smoke.

I seem to recall one of the investigators resembling a young Terence Stamp, but I’ve been through his filmography with a fine tooth comb and it doesn’t seem to have been him.

    1. No, there was no fantasy element at all, just a more or less present day police investigation. Thanks, though.

    1. It’s a good thought, but no. I’m familiar with all the LeCarre stuff, and this definitely wasn’t one of those. Thanks, though! I like that film.

    1. No, this one was definitely more of a straight ahead mystery, with English police detectives investigating a crime. Thanks, though!
