Tunnel To Nowhere
3 August 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

A man is knifed to death in a London sewer. Then during a power blackout, Georgina witnesses a smash-and-grab raid on a jeweller's, a crime for which she is arrested.

Beneath London's streets, criminals gather to listen as The Face outlines his plan for 'The Crime Of The Century' - he intends staging a massive power blackout, so that his men can emerge from hiding and steal everything they can get their hands on, including the Crown Jewels! Gasp!

A number of top British comedy writers contributed to this show, amongst them Vince Powell, Harry Driver, Dick Sharples, and Richard Waring. Presumably it was thought that these gentlemen's ability to concoct amusing, original situations would make them ideally suited to a show of this kind, which after all was pretty outrageous.

Waring was known at that time as the creator of the hit show 'Marriage Lines' which starred Richard Briers and Prunella Scales, and would later write 'Not In Front Of The Children' for Wendy Craig, and 'Rings On Their Fingers' for Martin Jarvis and Diane Keen.

'Tunnel' is nothing if not audacious; the 'blackout' idea was clearly inspired by the famous one in America two years before.

Why oh why does The Face deliberately endanger his own plan by involving Adamant? Its almost as though he wants to be thwarted.

The ending is a bit of an anti-climax - Georgina rescues Adam and Simms from a perilous situation, Adam pulls a lever and...that's it. End of story.

Kenneth Ives, who plays 'Bruno', would later direct episodes of the classic B.B.C. show 'Secret Army'.
