One of the best-executed "twists" ever, 15 September 2005
Author: John H from North East England

This episode is fascinating to watch. The opening scenes suggest that it might just be a succession of murders, but then the pace changes and we see that the main focus will be if, or how, the Michael Jayston character (who has more than one name) will get his come-uppance.

It's clear that at least one of Jayston's latter two lady friends is not what she seems - but very few viewers seem to work out what the final "twist" will be.

Michael Jayston makes a skillful job of playing the man you love to hate, Helen Mirren is appropriately enigmatic and the supporting cast (including the reliable Michael Gwynn and Arthur English) are just right. I would be surprised to find anyone who doesn't enjoy the resolution of this one.
