Entertaining As Long As You Suspend Disbelief, 13 September 2013
Author: Theo Robertson from Isle Of Bute, Scotland

Model Helen Cook buys a new Rolls Royce on a whim . She quickly realises there's something strange about it . Turning on the radio she hears a news flash that shots have been fired in The Houses Of Paliament , an incident that happened several months earlier and is frightened to hear a womans scream from inside the car . She also finds a diamond earing in the boot and decides to find out who the car belonged and get to the bottom of the mystery

This is the type of episode that can be best described as utterly bonkers but fair goes to Brian Clemens for writing a supernatural mystery involving a car . The premise has been superseded by Stephen King's CHRISTINE but this is very much a precursor to that when the idea would have been much more original and is for the most part a rather entertaining tale reinforced by a rather showy performance by Jeremy Brett playing his role in much the same way as Paul Darrow would have played a medallion man

You can perhaps guess that the problem with a story featuring a haunted car will be in finishing the story in a convincing manner which unfortunately Clemens fails to do and will have you shaking your head saying " yeah right " . Not to be totally unfair it is a relatively engaging episode as long as you don't think about it in any great or critical detail
