Superstition
30 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Kenneth Haigh plays Scotland Yard Inspector Harry Roberts, who has arrived in a Welsh border village along with his new wife Nesta(played by Audrey Dalton) to investigate the mysterious murder of a local farmer who was killed with a hay-fork & bill-hook. They are then met by local constable Evans(played by Alan Napier) who tries to assist, but Harry learns that the local villagers are steeped in their superstitious beliefs of witchcraft and devilry, and when Nesta reports seeing a black dog, a supposed omen of death, she becomes the next target for murder. Uneven episode starts out well, with many fine performances and atmosphere, but does sputter a bit in the middle before its bright(if mundane) finish.
