Clever use of scenarios
27 April 2018 | by chris-4016See all my reviews

Both Michael Erickson, and George Gideon's son Matthew have scenes involving record players

The Wolseley 6/110 Police cars always feature heavily, however this is the first car chase featuring two units, stopping the speeding Jaguar 3.8

The two villains were driving a Ford Zephyr Mk 3, with the 4 cylinder 1703cc engine

Janet Davies (Dad's Army's Mrs Pike) is sadly uncredited as the Hospital nurse
