  • Perfection itself

    One of the best episodes of the whole series. Denholm Elliott is perfection itself as he smiles with delight (or is that "grimaces with shock"?) during the revelation of his cousin's death. We also have Tom Conway on hand to give a spot-on impersonation of brother George. The twisteroo at the end is quite a good one, and a very pretty piece of drollery. Even the cops commenting on the irony of the finale is itself nicely ironic.
