A pity Lamb didn't turn into a sheep!
21 January 2018 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Having worked my way through the Thriller box set this one felt a little unusual to begin with, but equally as enjoyable as the Thriller episodes. It looks and feels very different, more straight laced then you get with thriller. but an intriguing drama nonetheless. I wonder if they'd tested the water as it were to see if a series was viable from this one episode, a shame it wasn't developed, more mileage could have come from its main characters. The crime is engaging enough, good suspects, a good set of characters, but it's the charisma of Stanley Baker that makes it such a great watch for me, he is so commanding on screen, a hugely talented actor, 'don't call me Sir!' Derek Francis was good, a prolific actor right up until his death, Dennis Lill was good. Barbara Leigh-Hunt I thought was excellent. Wonderful fashions and decor throughout, a time when people wore dinner jackets and donned cravats. A good watch.
