I am a big fan of the writings of Frances Durbridge, and over the years his work has been adapted many times, Melissa arguably the most famous. Bat out of Hell is very typical of his work, with twists and turns galore. His work was popular all over the world. Surely it's time his books were remade.
John Thaw and Sylvia Syms are both particularly good, it's always nice e to see their ear!y work. Syms was very glamorous.
Overall there is enough for whodunit fans to keep them guessing through til the end, the red herrings do a good job in throwing you off the scent, maybe a bit slow for some, but overall I really enjoyed it. 7/10
