False DVD identity
18 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As that is what this episode was titled in the DVD I picked up, 'False Identity.' But both give a fair idea of what the story is about, escaped outlaw, Biff Baker, takes over the identity of Old Joe to fool the law but Joe's long lost sister is coming to visit. Cue the masked man sorting things out and bringing the would be killer to justice. Standard entry in the long running series, marked out by a good acting turn by Lester Sharpe as the aforementioned Baker. Sneering cruelty and nice turn of phrase as the psychotic murderer. Unusual in this series where black and white one dimensional characterisation was the norm.

Everything is pretty predictable as was the case in all the stories but still a better than average one. And Tonto doesn't go into town or get knocked out in this one either!
