Episode Summary

EDIT
The Hollow Men
AIRED:
Jericho is set for television stardom, as he auditions to present a new crime series, but he is uncomfortable with this latest development in his celebrity status. The detective investigates the deaths of two young couples, and it emerges that the victims had visited a local cinema prior to their demise. Media coverage of the case suggests a link to notorious killings some years before, but also revives memories Jericho would rather forget. It soon transpires that he is not the only one battling with his past.moreless

    London is encumbered by an environmental change that makes travel and viewing limited; this plot line may seem similar to some.



    "Jericho" is not a series for the cerebrally limited or those who watch in distraction. This episode is an great example. Many plot lines run though the story. Small allusions and clues present briefly and obtusely. Many may be confused.



    For those who watch attentively and love the plot line, it will enrich. Jericho deals with his rivals in the department. Family history is revealed. For those who follow there is an intricate plot line.



    London's history brings back memories of another serial killer, the butcher. Suspects have history of World War II Burma and Japanese POW camps. Hollywood's World War II creation, "The Bridge Over The River Kwai" plays a role.



    It is a good episode.moreless

    • The episode concerns the making of a television drama series based on Jericho's adventures. The idea of making a TV series chronicling the fictitious adventures of a real-life London police detective is derived from the BBC's Fabian of the Yard (1954-1956) in which Bruce Seton played Detective Inspector (later Superintendent) Robert Fabian, a famous Scotland Yard detective who was still a serving officer at the time. The BBC series was broadcast some years earlier than the 1958 setting of this episode.
