It's hard to be engaging when the things you love keep changing
26 September 2005 | by Paul EnglishSee all my reviews

'Nightmare For A Nightgale' is a reasonably entertaining installment from Thriller's final series. By this point it was proving difficult to sustain the original and gripping tales that had prevailed for most of the opening five series. However this remains an engaging story which is certainly worth a look.

Susan Flannery plays Anna Cartell, a renowned opera singer, who is shocked when her supposedly dead husband, Tony, pays her visit one evening. He quickly establishes his motives - money - but an argument ensues and she accidentally kills him.

Problem solved? In a script not unlike 'Once The Killing Starts', Anna starts to receive flowers in the style that Tony used to send and a trip back to the scene of the crime reveals a missing body. She confides in her manager Sam with whom there is more than meets the eye...

The conclusion is reasonably cut and dried but is somewhat woolly in its execution. Certainly not the worst episode but not that memorable either.
