Storyline

Tommy Bonn returns to London amidst a pleasure cruise, during which he met his American fiancée, Sally Benner. On the Soho riverfront, his Scotland Yard colleague, Stephen, shows him the latest victim in a series of four silk stocking strangulations, all of whom were thirtyish women roaming the streets alone. The wedding guests begin to arrive, beginning with the Setlins, shipboard acquaintances of the Benners, including Elliot Benner, the best man. Although matrimony is only four hours away, Sally insists upon taking a walk to assuage her premarital jitters. First she visits Guerney and Son Chemists to pick up some cosmetics and a candy bar. Guerney Jr. follows her when she leaves the pharmacy and watches as she passes an antique shop followed by a hi-fi store, briefly chats with a streetwalker, then enters Sutherland's Book Shop. Sutherland recites some Keats to her, the first time a customer has asked for a reading in years; then she buys a rare poetry edition. She then goes to a ... Written by Lewis Amack

Promises More Than Delivers
30 October 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, the hour promises more than it delivers. A series of strangulation murders of 30-ish women has occurred on the streets of London. Investigating officer Tommy (Randell) is scheduled to marry Sally (Kellerman) that evening. Family and friends have gathered for the big event. Trouble is 30-ish Sally has gotten cold feet and decide to walk about London on her wedding day. When ceremony time draws near but she hasn't returned, guests begin to worry, especially Tommy who's afraid she's fallen prey to the strangler.

The lead-up is pretty talky and slow, but producers have cast some eccentric characters to keep up interest. Goateed Elliot (Bessell) appears kind of a flake, while Edward (Carradine) lurks around the streets of London. Of course, the premise of a serial strangler grabs viewers right away. With a big cast of veteran actors (e.g. Gregg, Smith, Pate et al.), there's a cast of potential suspects, though why any could or should be suspects isn't evident. Anyway, the reveal for me, at least, was disappointing, lagging in the usual dose of series irony or imagination. But maybe the familiar faces will be enough.
