From a light fluffy corner of The Twilight Zone.
10 January 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Valentine (Larry Blyden) is a thief who finds himself dead and in a realm of afterlife. Mr Pip (Sebastian Cabot) is his guide in the white suit. As all seems pleasant Valentine wonders if he might have done something good to get into heaven, but cant remember any such thing.

A light and dreamy fantasy that is one of the weaker entries of the outstanding first series, though it would have held it's own in any other season. The best asset is Sebastian Cabot, the unsung great character actor who voiced Baghera for 'The Jungle Book' and played Dr Hilyard in 'The Time Machine'. He was always a great actor to listen to.

Light fun, put across with tongue-in-cheek in an atmospheric white-looking corner of the Zone.
