AIRED:

Nick Cheney was once a successful director, but he has now ended up mainly directing low-budget films. We meet him as he is directing The Scarlet Pimpernel at Magna Manor. A former convict, Jed Norris, has been hired as a security guard on the film set, and one night he finds the director dead, beheaded by the use of a guillotine.

  • In my opinion, this is one of the worst episodes I have seen of this usually fantastic drama series. A director of dull, low-budget films is murdered and Barnaby and Jones have to deal with a bunch of B-grade actors to solve the crime.moreless

    4.5
    Magna Manor is the chosen filming site for a low budget version of 'The Scarlet Pimpernel.' When the director, Nick Chaney, is found dead, having been decapitated by a very real guillotine, Barnaby and Jones have to sort through the several suspects who had reason to dislike Chaney and see whom had the motive as well as the opportunity to commit the crime.



    Could it have been Jed Norris, a former convict who was hired as security for the film set? Or perhaps the miserly producer Jack Braxton or even the local taxi driver who just MIGHT have had a problem with Chaney given that he fathered a child by Chaney's girlfriend.



    I found that I didn't care a jot about who killed Chaney or why as I din't like him or any of the suspects at all. Not my favourite episode at all.moreless
