While they are gone the Griffins' home is cleared out by burglars. Tom Gold and his wife perform at the Half Moon, a low down night club with bad acts including a .hypnotist. Tom appears to drink too much and his pop singer wife encourages him to perform because they " need the money." He could have made it big. All his friends got record deals and made it into orchestras. He is left with these night club acts and teaching private classes. The next morning , still effected by the night before and prodded by his wife because they "need the money," he goes off to teach a lesson and on the way plays a pop tape in his car and drives himself into a commercial truck at a high rate of speed.

Weakest episode of all
11 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While not always logical, this series usually made at least some sense. In this, the last episode, one gets the feeling that the writers had already left the building! The two cases involved are a robbery at Griffith's own house, and a man who dies in a car accident (accident? suicide? murder?) Unfortunately the script is extremely poor and there is lots of filler material in the form of supposedly funny scenes that add nothing to the plot. The acting, as always is good. But while some of the episodes have large casts and on-location shooting, this episode has none of that. Save your viewing time for "Morse" and "Lewis". I really feel they could have done better with this series, as it is the first five episodes are OK, this one being the only stinker.
