Ray Milland's character in this episode goes out drinking and can't remember where he's been; a nod to Milland's role in "The Lost Weekend." See more »


When Monaca Grey is shot the TV news broadcast is just starting as the announcer reads the lead story. At the end, the broadcast is recreated with the exact script and timing. This would indicate that Monaca Grey is shot at 10 PM and takes 25 minutes to unplug the TV, not the 30 seconds as originally shown at the start of the story. See more »


Inspector Richard Queen: Almost as far-fetched as one of your books. A dying clue, which makes absolutely no sense, which means, of course, it's right up your alley.

The best tv series ever made
2 October 2002 | by (Florence, Italy) – See all my reviews

Probably the best mystery series ever made for TV. The acting is excellent, often above average. That's too bad this series is to this day unavailable on VHS or DVD. The episode of the fashion designer murder is the best.
