Early Thatcher years episode of Tales of the Unexpected
20 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a fan of Tales of the Unexpected but I do miss Roald Dahl's introductions which he made from a comfortable lounge chair by a fireside. I'm not sure if it was from his real lounge suite, but still a nice way to start an episode.

Here there's no Roald Dahl intro, but still this episode appeals on many levels. You have a police medico who regrets leaving his first wife (who ends up being a decoy to catch a killer), and is keen to divorce his second one, who I guess was good for the physical aspect (but this wears off after time). This episode was set outside of London, as the first wife planned to sell the house and move with the kids to London.

It's interesting seeing the fashion and cars in this episode, which was from 1982, just three years after Thatcher promised to end the Winter of Discontent.
