Tightly plotted episode
16 July 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better episodes.

The opening scene features Billy playing around a completely icebound freighter as it sits in the harbour. No special effects, this image is quite arresting. What follows is tightly plotted, Billy witnesses a crime but does not know it. However he is spotted, and later kidnapped. His sister goes to Nick to help her find him. She is then captured. After investigating the matter, the mystery is solved, those kidnapped rescued, and the baddies captured. What are always interesting are the background scenes. The harbour docks covered by snow, the 1960s street scenes, the cars, and best of all, how "sophisticated" Nick is, reflecting contemporary values.
