  • A rather odd individual has unquestionably committed a murder (despite the dead man being a stranger to him), claiming that he knows, through his highly-developed powers of extra-sensory perception, that the victim meant to do him harm. Self-defence?moreless

    It was a surprise to find Emlyn Williams taking a guest spot in a series - indeed, his television roles at that time had been few - but he gives an arresting performance in this most unusual episode. In the first half of the sixties, there was a great deal in the newspapers about extra-sensory perception and related psychic phenomena (matters altogether too subtle to be of interest to the greed-is-good generation of the eighties and afterwards) and the script handles the possibilities of the storyline with considerable finesse, avoiding either bombast or sentimentality. The twist at the very end of the story is forseeable, but still gives one pause.moreless
