'Sign It Death' brings Thriller's second series to an explosive climax. The acting performances are outstanding all around, the story entirely plausible, and the tension is maintained throughout with no let up until the stirring conclusion is arrived at.

The leading roles are played by Patrick Allen (as successful company director Richard Main) and Francesca Annis (as a beautiful but deeply deluded secretary Tracy Conway). Allen's voice was instantly recognisable from the 1975 brace of Protect and Survive public information films in which he sternly advised of how to cope after a nuclear explosion. Annis plays the role of Tracy Conway to perfection. Conway's sole aim is to marry her boss who has to be a successful businessman. She ruthlessly schemes her way into Main's company and becomes his secretary. From then on her aim is to ensnare him and anyone who stands in the way is expendable.

The plot unfolds with sickening inevitability as Tracy's dangerous fantasies are acted out with chilling intensity. The supporting roles are well acted - particularly the delectable Jacqueline Tong (Daisy from Upstairs Downstairs) who plays Sally, another of the company's administrative staff.

'Sign It Death' is one of Thriller's most memorable episodes and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
