Holds up fairly well until he gets wet.

A fairly interesting episode with a blind man as the protagonist/detective character. Max Corrados (Robert Stephens) plays a blind aristocrat who apparently has helped the police solve numerous crimes and is well known for this. He is taken captive by a clever ploy (which I thought quite good)as he is about to testify against a prominent witness who has powerful backers. Anyhoo he is held in a cell in a basement somewhere...then the story goes cuckoo. There is a drought going on and he finds an overhead water pipe and pierces it to get a drink. Then he notes that the drought is driving the water companies crazy as they are apparently losing water due to leaks everywhere. Still following? He then decides to start tapping on the pipe in what appears to be some sort of Morse code. Luckily two guys from the water company are overhead checking the water gates/valves at that time and hear him and then they converse in Morse code because one understands it from his time in the army in India...ack! Story wasn't bad until it went off the rails/jumped the shark.
