Quirky, atmospheric
10 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

I have never actually met anyone who watched this series, although it appeared in the most popular programme ratings of 1963. I loved it. Reeking film-noir atmosphere, interesting, powerful characters. Keith Barron, Sarah Lawson and Edwin Richfield produced a tangible on-screen chemistry which felt 'real'. William Mervyn's upper-crust Inspector Rose was a good contrast to the other three. I believe only one episode has survived: the tapes were wiped clean for re-use, I'm told.
