The Girl who Walked Quickly is a tale about a phobic who we see being brainwashed by total immersion and being made to work for a murderous organisation. I shan't give away what happens, but the violence is quite graphic for a show that went out before 9pm.
The trouble with the show is that it sets up a lot of intriguing ideas and never really pays off on them. We see the hero's parents and the scene seems to suggest something horrible happening in his past: but it never really goes anywhere. We don't know what the terrorists are trying to achieve and also the ending seems a bit rushed. The problem might have been the focus being split between the hero's story, and that of his girlfriend and tutor who are trying to find him.
Not perfect, but worth a look if you like 70s psychological thrillers.
