Unknown Murderer
1 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Murray Matheson stars as Andrew Lawrence, who is deeply concerned about his wife Sylvia(played by Ann Todd) whom he thinks is guilty of murdering a London doctor in his office. Sylvia in turn thinks that Andrew is the killer, and seeks out the help of an old flame named Donald Carver(played by Felix Deebank). Andrew meanwhile is being blackmailed by the murdered doctor's nurse(played by Avis Scott) in a scheme to become a permanent part of his household. Of course, the actual murderer was in plain sight the whole time... Nearly forgotten episode is rather good, if a bit slow, with a most clever(if complicated) plot and a neat twist ending.
