The twist was a surprise to me too, 25 July 2010
Author: didi-5 from United Kingdom

This episode of 'Thriller' starts simply enough, with a murder and a change of identity - but slowly it becomes a tense battle of wills as the Michael Jayston character (who has a succession of names) meets his match as he plots another way to gain riches.

Although it is clear that one of Jayston's lady friends isn't quite what she seems, I didn't work out the twist at all, and once seen you want to immediately review the episode to see how clever it is.

Beautifully written and supported by Helen Mirren, Michael Gwynn and Arthur English, this 'Thriller' story is one of the best of the series, and Jayston is appropriately mysterious, sinister, and silky smooth.
