Storyline

Jack Lyons is interrogated by the police. He accidentally reveals himself as a murderer when he identifies a crocodile dressing case and the initials engraved on it. Since the initials were engraved on it shortly before the murder and fell off during the murder, only the killer and victim could have known about them. Jack is promptly arrested.

In the 50s, murderers NEVER got away with it
29 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's a fine example of one of the most common plot types on AHP: a murderer gets caught because of a tiny detail.

THE CROCODILE CASE is especially enjoyable because of the teaming of a very young Denholm Elliot and the charming Hazel Court. In several deftly-written scenes, we watch their relationship disintegrate from illicit passion to boredom and disgust.

And Pat Hitchcock makes one of her many AHP appearances, as usual playing the dumpy sister/cousin/friend of the main female character.

Hazel Court and Don Taylor (who directed this episode) were married a few years after this was filmed. Perhaps someone can tell us whether this episode was the occasion of their first meeting.
