Bland and uninspiring ITC show.

ITC produced far superior shows in comparison with the above. "The Baron" doesn't impress me on the whole. The sets are almost non-descript, most of the stories are poorly written (apart from a few that are reasonable) and Steve Forrest makes for a thoroughly dull leading actor. He is bland and wooden, he displays precious little enthusiasm from one episode to the next. Another problem with this show, is the time when production was shut down for a while. This achieved utter confusion when production had been resumed because of the sudden change in the regular cast. Talented character actor Colin Gordon made a handful of appearances but he gets written out altogether. I consider that to be a sizeable loss to the series as Colin Gordon had a good character to play. Sue Lloyd is irritating as the female regular, I never liked her. Episodes with Peter Wyngarde, Mike Pratt and Patricia Haines have some good highlights in all fairness. It's a pity the others couldn't have been entertaining. The plots tend to drag along and there is a definite lack of creativity. I only recommend this in short bursts. Otherwise, you might be disappointed
