Storyline

Tony Bragg, suspected fence in a huge diamond heist is pushed to his death from his London flat. Bragg had visited Jersey some while earlier and Scotland Yard ask for Jim's help. Then Philippa Vale arrives on the island with Bragg's associate Ormond, who is also killed. Philippa tells Jim that Ormond asked her to rob three local worthies, one of whom double-crossed Bragg and stole the diamonds. As the pair of them work outside the law to locate the culprit - who also murdered Ormond - they find that nobody can be trusted. Written by don @ minifie-1

1987 Christmas special well worth a look...
9 July 2010 | by (Swansea, South Wales) – See all my reviews

This is a feature length Christmas special first shown in 1987. Rarely seen despite the countless re-runs on the UKTV channels, it is available on the 'Bergerac' DVD box sets currently available in the UK.

I thought this episode was most enjoyable. The action moves from London to Jersey at a pace and as well as a decent plot involving murder and diamond smuggling, there's further insight into the relationship between Jim and the elusive Philippa Vale as well as some worthy comedic moments involving Terence Alexander and the much-underused James Maxwell. Peter Jeffrey and Lynette Davies add to a well assembled cast.

The only sad thing that dawned on me whilst I was watching is how many of the actors have now passed on. Well worth watching.
