Storyline

Crooked lawyer Carlton Rodd gets Joe Sholto off the hook for burning down his warehouse for the insurance money. A cop was killed and a cleaning lady blinded in the process but Rodd confuses her in court, winning his client's freedom. The Saint decides to exact his own form by justice by making Sholto believe that Rodd is about to rat on him for a reward, thus putting 'the element of doubt' into his mind. Written by don@minifie-1

Kill all the lawyers
12 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Strange early entry in this long series as apart from the introductory segment at the beginning, the Saint doesn't make a big appearance until we are well into the story. Not a bad thing as the rest of the cast shine in this, a particularly good turn by David Bauer as the nauseous, slimy criminal lawyer, Carlton Rood. You just can't wait for this creepy piece of work to get what's coming to him.

When Simon does turn up, the plot has been well laid out, Carlton Rood has got crooked, murdering businessman, Joe Sholto, off scot-free, due to his legal machinations. Simon soon devises a scheme to turn the tables on both men to bring them to justice.

Good well worked out story with a suitably pleasing conclusion. Although Roger Moore's American accent when pretending to be a writer, does leave something to be desired!
