When Detective Chief Inspector Wexford receives an anonymous letter informing him that 'a girl named Ann has been killed by a small, dark young man named Geoff Smith' he little realizes that his investigation will turn out to be among the most baffling of his career.Written by
I have watched a few retro 80s shows recently (Ashes To Ashes and It's A Sin) so it is good to catch up with a show actually made in the era.
I watched the four episode in an omnibus (over 3 hours long) so I am not sure where each instalment started.
I can't believe this ran for 14 years and I never saw an episode.
It's great to see the 80s for real and actors looking somewhat younger!
The cars of the day bring back so many memories (not a German car in site and Nissan hadn't been invented yet -loving the Datsun!) and the sound of stilettos on the pavement reminds me of kicking out time in my 80s youth even if the heels in question weren't the obligatory white in colour.
Kim Thomson was in a few things around this time and I always found her most fanciable.
By today's standards, the story is a bit prolonged but this was made by the unfashionable TVS whom wouldn't have had the funds for car chases and fight scenes so make up for it with wordy speeches but some good humour too.
