Author: Paul English from Ireland

After the disappointing 'Killer With Two Faces', Thriller's fourth series got right back on track with the riveting and sometimes terrifying 'A Killer In Every Corner'. While not as nailbiting as 'I'm The Girl He Wants To Kill', it is nevertheless a gripping piece of storytelling which will keep you on the edge of your seat, particularly during the last 20 minutes or so.

Patrick Magee plays the part of Professor Carnaby, a renowned psychologist who invites three university students to his home for a seminar. The trio are Tim, Helga and Sylvia and all are at vary stages of their degree but it later transpires that they have one salient thing in common - no parents. Make of this what you will... Carnaby employs two manservants, Boz and George who add to the sense of unease with their intense behaviour (George) and barely restrained aggression (Boz). It soon becomes clear that both men have had violent pasts and are now completely under the professor's control. There is also a journalist, Slattery, staying in the house on a temporary basis.

Almost immediately it is obvious that Carnaby, while undoubtedly brilliant in his field, is relentless in the pursuit of a 'cure' for murderous criminals and will stop at nothing to carry out experiments to see how well their treatment has fared. And that is where the three students come in - as foils in this demented research.

Soon both Tim and Helga fall by the wayside and it is left to Sylvia to realise the danger she is from the mad Professor and his unhinged experiments. The final scenes are gripping and will leave you drained.

A fine episode.
