Superb episode, wonderfully gripping.
28 December 2017 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A strangler is on the loose, targeting young women, the centre of activity seems to be the local Library, where head Librarian Liz Morris's curiosity tangles her up in the grim case. Without any doubt, this is the best episode of Thriller I've seen up to this point, a relatively simple plot, but the way it's told, and the superb characterisations make for compelling viewing. The acting is indeed superb, Maureen Lipman and John Le Mensurier are the standouts, a fabulous combination of acting talent, each makes their character incredibly interesting. As a whodunit it works incredibly well, you are truly kept in the dark until the very last, even then you're left questioning if you have all the answers. Some griping moments, the conclusion in particular. First rate, 10/10.
