Rushed, disjointed but still good
10 July 2011 | by (London, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A few thoughts:

It feels rushed. One thing, then another, then another. It is as if the original story was far too long to cram into one hour (including ads) - which it almost certainly was. But they'd done better in similar situations before.

The real answer to this problem is to have more than one episode or make a movie - something they did try towards the end of the run although sadly, not with original Charteris novels.

Machine guns! Cool!

Suzan Farmer is, as ever, perfect. It's amazing she didn't go on to greater things.

Dr Julius isn't nearly evil enough and doesn't get nearly enough airtime considering the effort that Templar made to find him.

And yet, despite all this - it's still fun.
