Dead husband haunting his wife
10 September 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Episode 22, "Present Tense" squanders an interesting premise, beginning with the crash of a flight containing the husband of young Emily (Mary Parker), who was waiting to divorce him and marry Gordon Baird (Phil Brown, previously seen in "The Sorcerer"). He seemed to have developed an interest in telepathy before his death, and now his grief stricken widow feels responsible for what happened, and continues to refer to him in the 'present tense,' according to Gordon. Lydia the housekeeper (Doris Hare) is convinced that his ghost has returned from the grave, playing the piano at night, and is too frightened to remain. Fortunately, Dr. Brandeis (John Laurie) has called upon Emily's uncle, Colonel March himself, to help clear up the mystery (Ewan Roberts as Inspector Ames is absent here). Most disappointing is the climax, which dispels any trace of the supernatural.
