Simon Templar: Very tricky lad this Vosper. He's found out that most people like reading dirt, so three times weekly, his column dishes it up and by mixing a few grains of truth into a mess of innuendo and smut, Floyd Vosper pretends to report the load on celebrities. I don't know what you feel about it, but to me, it is like a dirty kid scrawling filthy words on a backyard fence.

Arrow misses the mark
9 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

Complete pedestrian episode in the series, with no action at all, Simon never even gets to hit anyone or get his hair mussed! A slimy gossip columnist is killed and it's up to our hero to find the true murderer from the list of subjects. Everyone, as the newspaper man was loathed by all. But it doesn't take long to work it all out in this rather tired and lethargic story.

Stock footage at the start of the Bahamas is followed by set bound studio filming as was usual in this programme, although it seems even more obvious when the story doesn't hold the interest.

Honour Blackman is mildly distracting as the eye candy here and the rest of the cast do well with what they have to work with but it never rises above the routine.
