Trivia

The original story upon which this was based was called 'The Reluctant Nudist' and was set on the Ile du Levant on the French Riviera, a popular nudist holiday resort. The reluctant nudist was George, still disapproving of his uncle's relationship with a much younger woman, but the three ex-wives were written in to the television adaptation. See more »

The Reluctant Viewer
2 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Based on the original story,'The Reluctant Nudist,'this episode might have been helped by some nudity to just enliven the proceedings! The Saint ventures into Agatha Christie dining room murder mystery territory and it's all a bit dull really with only a couple of half hearted fist fights to add any action.

Simon is invited to an old friend's wedding along with his three ex-wives,the friend is murdered and it's up to our hero to figure out which ex-wife stood to gain from this. A fairly pedestrian plot plods along to the end as the suspects are gathered together and all is revealed. Just the identity of the killer and not any nudity sad to say as like I mentioned before,it might have made things a tad more interesting.
