I thought this was shaping up to be a standard "They're playing with his mind to drive him crazy" type of story. When it turned out that a genuine supernatural event had occured I was a little disappointed because I wanted to hear all the details about how the two lovers arranged things to make the man come unhinged. It reminded me a little of Macbeth, where we are left wondering if Macbeth was the victim of a self-fulfilling prophecy. But since that isn't the case here the only real mystery is who the heck that guy in the cemetery was. All-in-all a good listen, but nothing really new or intruiging here, so I give it a C.

I remember hearing this on its first run, and the that was the first time I had heard "Mystery Theatre". I was 10 years old. Our TV wasn't functional, then, so I listened as often as I could after that (which was on Friday and Saturdays only because Mystery Theater came on around 10 p.m. CST around then, and I wasn't allowed to stay up late on weeknights).

"Tomorrows Murder" is a very good mystery that walks that fine line of psychology/supernatural, that are my favorites. Some feelings and occurrences may seem supernatural, but might they just be our inner intuitions working subconsciously? Another really great psychological/supernatural one is "Island of the Lost", and of course, the best, ultimate classic one of all time, "The Graveyard"! Anyone know of some others?

The protagonist's final line of dialogue is one of the best/funniest in RMT history. The story keeps the listener guessing and is worth a second hearing. Very enjoyable episode with a touch of mystery that kept me thinking about this story after it was over.
