Per the title, Piccadilly is a major London street that runs from Piccadilly Circus to Hyde Park Corner. While it used to be a major shopping street, it is known known as a center for nightlife. The name derived from a Robert Baker shoe built a house in the area after making money manufacturing stiff collars or piccadills around 1700. See more »
Paladin is hired by a wealthy widower named Martin Westrope (Carl Berton Reid) to find the widow of his late son, a cavalry officer on a remote post. When he returns with the girl, he discovers another woman has already arrived, claiming to be the dead man's widow. It's up to Paladin to play Hec Ramsey for a bit and solve the mystery! Pretty enjoyable episode made more so by the performances of Charles Aideman as the unscrupulous nephew, and with Soap Opera regular Betsy Von Furstenberg and Fintan Meyler as the two women claiming to be Mrs. Westrope.
I guess Meyler liked doing this show because she did three more, then retired for 11 years before doing one last performance on "Emergency".
