Probably the weakest of the episodes
12 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Veil" was a series that apparently never got shown BUT which, oddly, consisted of quite a few episodes. Usually, you'd think they would just make a pilot episode--and I would love to know more about this.

I have seen most but not all of the episodes. So, I cannot say for sure that "Vision of Crime" is the weakest episode--but it's certainly in the running. It is a strange and unsatisfying combination of drama and comedy--and that is why, for me, it doesn't work.

Mr. Bosworth is on a sea voyage when he has a premonition--someone is murdering his brother. As soon as possible, he disembarks and rushes home to find, unfortunately, that his premonition was true! However, the idiotic police have arrested the wrong man--he's NOT the guy in Bosworth's vision. So who is responsible?

If you take out the annoyingly stupid policeman played by the host, Boris Karloff (he appeared in all but one of the episodes in addition to hosting), this could have actually been one of the better shows. But, annoying he is--and the impact is reduced considerably.
