I miss Roald's introduction
7 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The early episodes of Tales of the Unexpected featured Roald "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" Dahl's introductions as he sat back in his lounge seat beside a fireplace. I'm not sure if this was filmed in his home or in a studio.

Unfortunately there's no Roald Dahl introduction in this episode, which is a whodunnit and also howdunnit. How did the alleged murderer commit the deed in an office that would make David Brent proud in Slough.

The police make every effort to find out how the murder was committed, and the audience is left scratching their head big time until the final twist at the end.
