I thought this was a good story! Kept me listing.... No supernatural or witchcraf. Good who dun it mystery.

I liked this one - it was more of a police procedural than anything else, and an interesting one at that. Seemed kind of patronizing that the female detective needed help to solve the case, though.


Is Mr. Drone the same actor who played the evil Mr. Stuart in Arch Oboler’s Lights Out episode “Murder Castle”?


This is a good whodunit that kept my attention.


Aren't we past the point of saying "lady detective?" She's a detective.

We’re past “lady detective” now. But, this was broadcast in 1979…40+ years ago. It’s pointless to ask history to comply with contemporary social expectations.


You missed the point. Someone modern from this site wrote it into the episode description.

I just love these episodes that are murder mysteries. This is like in the series of the female detectives. Another Wu banger!!!

This show is almost an EXACT episode of #Monk! Exchange Kim Hunter for Tony Shaloub and you've got a verbatim story! I've noticed about 6 others from here have been pilfered and plagiarized for modern TV, but because these are so old and obscure no one notices... sad really.
