Storyline

Photographer Jerry Grant throws himself in front of a car and dies raving in hospital. Jim learns that he worked for a newspaper and had befriended Helene Duvall in order to gain entry to a black magic coven headed by occult writer Bart Bellow. Jim is initially sceptical, but when a neighbour of Bellow's dies mysteriously having released sacrificial animals, realises that he must take the matter very seriously. Helene offers to help but this places her in danger with Bellow and Jim must race to save her. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Det. Sgt. Jim Bergerac: You identified the body for us, didn't you, Mr Dudley?
Dennis Dudley: Yes and you can keep THAT for a game of soldiers too in future.
Det. Sgt. Jim Bergerac: Turn you right off, did it?
Dennis Dudley: Sergeant, I've seen dead bodies before, but I've never seen one with a look like that on his face. My God, anyone would've thought he'd just came face to face with Old Nick himself.
Det. Sgt. Jim Bergerac: Perhaps he had.
Dennis Dudley: Smile when you say that, Sergeant.

Homage to a classic
24 April 2007 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This episode is a homage to the great film The Devil Rides Out, based on the book by Dennis Wheatley, in which Charles Gray plays the chief Satanist. Gray reprises his role with his usual charm. The dialogue is unexpectedly witty. The mortuary attendant claims his wife says his job has made him hard while simultaneously chomping a sandwich and displaying a body. Says Bergerac to Gray: "You don't mince your words, do you!" Gray: "My words are too valuable to be minced." There's a slight whiff of sulphur from the pit but the forces of good are represented only by solid policemen and their decent wives. Malcolm Tierney puts in an appearance as a gay landlord.

A particularly good episode of a wonderful series. Where is the Robert Banks Stewart of the new millennium?
