Storyline

The Saint is in the South of France and is the chief suspect following a spate of jewel robberies from the rooms of hotel guests. The actual thieves hope to incriminate the Saint by planting some of the loot in his room but one of them falls from the balcony to his death. Not convinced of the Saint's innocence the local police chief has the Saint tailed by the inept Alphonse, whom he enjoys eluding. Natalie, whose employer was one of the robbery victims, teams up with the Saint to discover that the master-mind behind the thefts is not at all whom they expected. Written by don @ minifie-1

Not so bad mousetrap
24 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

One of the common reoccurring themes in the Saint stories, where he is framed for a crime he didn't commit. Here jewel thieves learn to their cost that it's not a wise move. A fairly standard episode with enough twists and turns to keep it interesting but with such a small cast,it's pretty easy to figure out who the mystery villain turns out to be. As it's set on the Riviera, there's a lot of 'azzents of ze 'Allo,Allo kind,' and with a young Ronnie Barker as a bumbling police sergeant,it does get somewhat Inspector Clouseau at times.

As a added bonus, there is the absolutely drop dead gorgeous Alexandra Stewart as Simon's confidante and love interest.
