The lives of grieving mother Rosalie and her daughter Maddie are changed forever when they meet Jed. A spark of hope for the future is rekindled within the household. But underneath, a deadly and morally corrupt triangle is taking shape.
Erik and Ann Sheppard run a bar on a Greek island, but all is not what it seems: both have murky pasts that they would prefer to forget. Erik is a reformed alcoholic and Korean war veteran invalided out of the British army after a nervous breakdown. He left England after being controversially cleared of murdering a young girl. Ann, unknown to him, is a 'sleeping' agent, who had been instructed to marry him as a cover. Unfortunately, she has become genuinely attached to him, and trouble looms when her superiors decide to activate her for a mission. Their attempts to break her affections include sowing doubts in her mind as to whether Erik did in fact kill the girl in England. This dilemma is brought into sharp focus when another young girl is murdered, under very similar circumstances. Loyalties are tested to the very limit before the truth can be reached.Written by
Watched it back in the day, really enjoyed it as a teenager. A friend bought me the box set o series 1 and it brought back all those memories, not just the episodes but the times. Wanda has an interview in the section at the end and is very honest. People of today may find it slow and the acting a bit wooden, although Ian Hendry and Wanda Ventham were brilliant. The second series was hopeless, it became ridiculous with abstract scenes that were far away from the writer, Bird's ideas. Typical BBC, break something that didn't need mending. They allowed a younger Director to mess it up with his ideology and futuristic nonsense. Surprise that we never heard of him again....thankfully. The series, as it ended in Series 1 could have gone on with similar storylines, it was a winning, popular format. RIP Ian Hendry.
