  • A worthless character turns up at Maigret's apartment, claiming to be an old friend. Maigret, who went to school with this man but never liked him, agrees to help save him from a murder charge.moreless

    It was a surprise to find the normally elegant and upper-crust Edward Petherbridge (an impersonator of Lord Peter Wimsey and a classical actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company) turning up in this episode as a shabby, down-at-heel failure who may or may not have murdered a prostitute. The deceased lady turns out to have several rather more affluent admirers and Maigret must sift through a succession of confliciting stories to find out who killed her. His genial contempt for the shameless scrounger who went to school with him and insists that they were friends is well conveyed by Gambon and his rather sharper attitude towards the rich and "respectable" types who also used the dead woman has the right touch of understated anger.moreless
