Disappointing
28 April 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Definitely one of the more disappointing episodes in the Thriller series, if not the worst. It tries to bring a comedy feel into it, with the central detective couple, a sort of thin man or McMillan & wife partnership. Unfortunately, although good actors, both Stephen Rae & Gayle Hunnicott seem misplaced, with no real chemistry between them. The other actors try hard, but fail miserably.The comic moments added little, which isn't helped by a silly plot line, & even worse a lack of any tension throughout.

I thought David Jason was in it at one point, but only later did I realise it was his real life brother.
