Trivia

Although Peter Falk wanted Patrick McGoohan to both act the killer's role and direct the MOW, McGoohan declined acting in the project. Billy Connolly was cast in the role. During filming, Patrick McGoohan became exasperated with Connolly for not learning his scripted dialogue. Patrick was a stickler on line delivery, since Patrick usually rewrote, revising scenes and dialogue related to the scenario. Another factor came into a scene's filming when it became apparent that Billy Connolly had imbibe in alcohol all afternoon, slurring his dialogue. Peter Falk was performing a scene with Billy Connolly in the recording studio set when Patrick McGoohan interrupted accusing Connally of being drunk! An ensuing argument occurred between Connolly and McGoohan, lasting about twenty minutes. The actors disappeared in their off stage dressing room trailers. An hour later, filming resumed. Connolly knew his dialogue for the rest of the filming schedule. See more »

Good if not great
27 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Murder with too Many Notes(love the title) was a good episode, but it was too flawed to be considered great. Starting with the good points, it is strikingly filmed, the music is delightful, there is some nice scripting and the acting from Peter Falk(not his best mind you, some of the more humorous parts such as "guess the piece" fell slightly flat) and Billy Conolly(toned down but surprisingly effective) is good. However, the plot isn't as strong this time around, the forensics for example as said already is dated and the ending especially was far too abrupt and underdeveloped. The pacing was uneven here, some of it was okay, some of it was slow and other parts felt somewhat frantic. The direction is a tad lacking as well. So overall, it is good, with some good performances, music and title, but the ending and plot fell flat for me. 6/10 Bethany Cox
