John Creasey writer?
12 September 2018 | by richard-meredith27See all my reviews

I can't fault this film. The Actors, the scenes, everything is good and I recommend it for people who like intelligent television with that vintage feel. You know the sort of thing I mean: real police uniforms, black cars, deserted roads, lots of fields. My only niggle is that it seems too rushed . Normally Gideon's crimes take place over a couple of days at the most. The action here is supposed to take place over several months and I think it suffers a little. It all seems too rushed and coincidental. Had it been a full length movie then it would have been perfect. But then, they may have had to acknowledge the true source of the story. A thriller called "Lady Killer" by Anthony Gilbert, published in 1951. I'm surprised that Gilbert (real name Lucy Mallison, cousin of the actor Miles Mallison) who died in 1973, did not sue!
