Outstanding television
1 July 2016 | by (Penarth, Wales) – See all my reviews

I remember having seen this around when it was first shown on British television. I must have been about 12. I remember I was very impressed by the writing (Richard Alan Simmons), and it may have been this episode that made me want to write (my third book is just out). The direction (painfully at night), the score (Leith Stevens), and Falk and Stevens are all brilliant, and the whole thing just, well, comes together superbly. Nobody ever seems to mention Le Salaire de la Peur (Henri-Georges Clouzot), which must have been at the back of Simmons' mind when he wrote this! I assume the title is an homage. But there was quite a lot of quality pioneering television being made back then, even in America. i suppose it's just that they've run out of ideas now.
