Mystery thriller set in Europe in the early to mid 1970's
10 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The series is currently being shown on ITV4. I saw a episode on 8th July 2006 in the early evening. I am not sure of the title of the episode but the plot concerned the alleged theft of a diamond belonging to an actress who assumed (wrongly) that her husband, a film director, was trying to steal the diamond to give to another woman who was to star in his latest film. The story contained the usual plot and counter-plot with plenty of red herrings and characters running off in the wrong direction before the truth was established. The acting was par for the course and the story lines predictable.It was interesting to watch and is typical of the early 1970's mystery TV shows such as Columbo, The Persuaders, Banachek and Macmillan and Wife. It does look dated and is formulaic. I must have missed the series the first time around although as a teenager I was an avid fan of this type of programme. Makes for good viewing when chilling out on a Saturday afternoon. It reminded me particularly of the Persuaders (Roger Moore and Tony Curtis) and the Protectors (Robert Vaughn and Tony Anholt) as it was set in the hip areas of Europe in the 1970's. In fact the story lines are interchangeable across the different programmes. It was good to see an Amercian actor (Brian Keith) with two British Actors (Barry Morse and John Mills) and Lily Palmer who I think is German.
