One Step in Great Britain
14 March 2010 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

In a South Wales coal-mining valley, not so long ago, police constable Clifford Evans (as Josh Jones) suspects Meredith Edwards (as Wyndham Roberts) has murdered a young woman. Even Mr. Edwards believes he committed the crime. He's confessed, and brought Mr. Evans to find the body. But, members of his church swear Edwards was in chapel during the entire time the murder could have occurred, dozing during the sermon… This episode's direction and atmospheric location footage is distinct, but the story isn't anything to write home about. and, it looks like it was "teleported" from a British anthology series.

**** Justice (3/7/61) John Newland ~ Clifford Evans, Meredith Edwards, Barbara Mullen, Pauline Jameson
