A pair of Gloves.
22 April 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Scott Douglas vehemently denies having met Rita, but he is challenged on that by a mysterious woman, Jo Hathaway.

It's amazing how Durbridge managed to make very minor, almost insignificant items into things of huge value and purpose. Here it's a simple pair of gloves, they pop up where they're not supposed to be, and they set about incriminating Harvey's main suspect.

I am totally into this absorbing drama. 8/10
