Look beyond the silliness

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Up until recently, i.e. the last time I watched it, I didn't think much of "The Man who Liked Lions".

It was the silly ending that put me off. Now, it's still a silly ending but take that away and it is actually a rather good story - a tale of corruption and murder and lives destroyed.

And of one man who, despite all the warnings, is prepared to dig deep and find the truth. If I didn't know better I would say it's a Charteris original. Although it would appear it isn't.

On the acting front Suzanne Lloyd is, as ever, superb, producing - to my untrained ear - one of the best Italian accents I have ever heard. Meanwhile Peter Wyngarde is all confident menace. Crazy but definitely not stupid. Sadly his believability goes seriously downhill towards the end. Perhaps even he realised it was all getting a bit silly.
