"Such a terrible dream"
28 July 2017 | by (Londinium) – See all my reviews

An entry in the Scotland Yard series filmed at Merton Park Studios and produced by Alec C. Snowden. A newly retired vicar and his wife come to London to visit their son who appears to have gone to Paris without telling them even though they thought he was expecting them. The couple move into their new retirement home but still don't hear from their son. Then the wife has a strange dream and the vicar consults Scotland Yard. This is a brisk but interesting story with some good camera work and atmospheric use of the negative film process.

Tristan Rawson and Evelyn Moore are well cast as the old couple worried about their son and the able supporting players include Howard Lang, Robert Cawdron and the ever reliable Roger Delgado . As usual the calm and collected Edgar Lustgarten narrates the story.
