Intriguing Tales of the Unexpected
14 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the features of The Dead Don't Steal, is it being featured in the English winter, probably around January. There were no Christmas trees in sight so I guess it was January. You saw snowfall, people rugged up, and so on. Quite atmospheric if you ask me, and quite a pleasant sight.

Glynis Barber, who plays two roles, primarily Lilian the flight attendant/admin assistant (and then her identical looking sister Sylvia who plays a police officer - twist alert!!!) is beautiful. No wonder Ken Johnson (Nicholas Ball) ran amok when Lilian decided to break off her affair with him, much to disastrous consequences typical of Tales of the Unexpected.

I wish Tales of the Unexpected could be rebooted. It deserves a reboot, especially in this post-Brexit world.
