A Ghost of a Case
2 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clark and Jimmy are in England. They have just traveled from Sweden and after a day are to return home. But there is a big story on the streets. A magician who had died five years previously after being run over by a Lorry (a truck, not a large woman) guaranteed he would return five years to the day. This guy was a piece of work. He was a great artist but was cruel and was hated by everyone. Clard is furious that he has to stay but the family that has become the target is convinced he will come back, so out of courtesy, the Planet reporter stays. An elderly man who is in fear of is life goes to the scene of the accident, thinks he sees and hears the ghost. When he passes out in the car as it's moving forward, Superman saves him. Back at the house, people begin to get phone calls from the dead man, but the telephone operator has no knowledge of these calls. This is actually a pretty good mystery, one of the better episodes.
