Beware Of Smooth Talkers, 18 February 2002
Author: Alan Briscoe ( from Coventry, England

This was the very first in Brian Clemens's superb "Thriller" anthology series and it is one of the very best outings. Jenny (Barbara Feldon), a shy American librarian, holidaying in the UK, is befriended by Paul (Robert Powell), an urbane, smooth-talking Englishman. They get married. It appears she has struck very lucky, but appearances are deceptive. We can see that he is plotting with someone behind her back. It transpires that he is already married to Toni (Linda Thorson) who is presumed dead, but is actually very much alive. Paul is planning to kill Jenny, and Toni is in on the plans and very much behind them... This episode is distinguished by three especially fine performances by Robert Powell, Barbara Feldon & Linda Thorson in the key roles. It also sees an excellent cameo by T.P. McKenna as a friend of Paul's who knows his intentions and wants to blackmail him. The show starts as it meant to go on with a disturbing mood skilfully created. This isn't as frightening as some other episodes but is none the worse for that. An excellent effort.
