Ingenious crime entry with Murray Matheson
24 May 2009 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Letter to a Lover" seems to promise a less than sterling THRILLER, but looks can be deceiving. One of the series' best crime episodes, it begins with a doctor's nurse entering her employer's office, discovering his dead body lying on the floor, and spotted fleeing the scene is Andrew Lawrence (Murray Matheson, previously seen in "The Poisoner"), whose wife Sylvia (Ann Todd) had an appointment with the doctor at the exact hour he was murdered. Opting to remove the evidence before phoning the police, the nurse (Avis Scott) intends to blackmail Andrew, who believes his wife committed the murder, while Sylvia believes that it was her husband. An understandably concerned Andrew decides that a trip to the country will work wonders for Sylvia's nerves (but not the viewer's, with a fine, fog shrouded atmosphere). Certainly on a par with "The Merriweather File" as a complex yarn of twists and turns, with no one above suspicion. Murray Matheson is fine, as always; Ann Todd had appeared with Christopher Lee in 1961's "Taste of Fear" (AKA "Scream of Fear") and with Patrick Magee in 1971's "The Fiend" (AKA "Beware of the Brethren").
