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

Has a London serial killer struck again?
11 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

An attempt to echo Jack the Ripper to London of the 1960's. A solid cast is wasted by a long and overdrawn script by the usually reliable Morton Fine. This episode would have worked much better in a half hour format. As it is David Carridine comes through with a creepy performance as a "person of interest" in a string of murders of young women in the historic city. Sally Kellerman before her "Hot Lips" O'Houlihan persona was created specialized in playing lovely,intelligent,but neurotic young women such as Sally Benner in this particular episode. There are some really talented character actors appearing in this story. Kent Smith, Virginia Gregg and Howard Caine all just stand around with nothing to do. Aussie actors Ron Randall and Michael Pate portray a couple of London police detectives investigating the events and trying to locate Kellerman, who happens to be Randall's reluctant fiancé.Unfortunately they both seem to be just going through the motions. Ted Bessell has a brief turn as another possible suspect and the delightful Alan Napier and Ida Lupino's cousin Richard Lupino have a comedic bit as a chemist and his dimwit son. In the end, it's Carridine and Kellerman who make this episode worth a watch.
