Great to see again!!!
19 October 2004 | by (uk) – See all my reviews

I have very early memories of A Dog's Ransom and recall it was one of the best Armchair Thrillers.

I remember all the frustration when the couple was trying to go along with the ransom and the dog was already dead. Tina, the much loved white poodle, was floating in the river.

Its great to see the older programmes as they have a twist at the end. It was certainly a good ending for some anyway!

I have just watched it, and its as good today as almost 30 years ago! If anyone has any other Armchair Thrillers, I would love to see them!
