Illusion and trickery

THE CASE OF THE MISGUIDED MISSAL sees Colonel March on the hunt for a missing prayer book, if you can believe that. This averagely-scripted episode of the Colonel March of Scotland Yard TV series is another locked room element, although it's rather a locked safe in this instance.

The story is slightly enlivened by an early acting role for Anthony Newley and the appearance of real-life illusionist Chan Canasta, who adds a little fun to the proceedings. It's the sort of episode that fans of Karloff and the show will enjoy, although others might be a little less impressed.
