The Missing Link goes missing
18 September 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

Episode 20, "The Missing Link" begins as a guard (Douglas Herald) prevents Tom Grafton (Peter Coke) from stealing a skull called 'Damascus Man,' known around England as 'The Missing Link,' from the museum owned by Sir Henry Danier (Stuart Lindsell). Sir Henry recognizes Grafton as a chemist working with Evelyn Innes (Helen Cherry), who believes that Danier's 'Damascus Man' is a fraud, and was subsequently fired by Danier when she sought to disprove his discovery. Scotland Yard is shocked to learn that the attempted theft failed to come off because the precious skull was already missing! Braden (Joseph Tomelty), the museum curator, tells Colonel March of their expedition to Syria that uncovered the skull, and how a third member died in a landslide. The climax finds our heroes caught in a sealed room pumped with poison gas, with Inspector Ames (Ewan Roberts) saving the day by cracking the safe!
