A rather subdued episode which promises more than it actually delivers.

Van der Valk is after a woman who is cashing forged cheques only to come across a blind cleric (Freddie Jones) who is one of the best forgers in Amsterdam.

Samson meanwhile has a sensitive government issue on his plate. The Chief Prosecutor Rokin who is mired in a corruption scandal has gone missing. Van der Valk finds that Rokin's religious wife is cold and maybe even not too bothered about his disappearance. Rokin is a keen photographer of birds and might just be on an expedition to spot and photograph birds.

Van der Valk and Samson have a few spats throughout this episode. Both visit Rokin's workplace. They figure no wonder Rokin's ran off as his colleagues are also rather cold.

Doctor Who alumni William Russell plays Rokin. Patrick Troughton plays a football supporting priest. All are wasted in a rather disappointing episode.
