New Scotland Yard: Reunion (ITV 8 July 1972, Robin Ellis)

In Reunion Steve Thomas escapes from prison, a short time later a solicitor is found robbed of eleven pounds and murdered. Thomas is obviously prime suspect but why would he steal such a small amount of money. Meanwhile Thomas is taken in by a young woman called Tricia. Thomas claims to be innocent of murder and is desperate to see his wife. Tricia decides to help him.

Another high quality episode with strong playing from all concerned. Nicholas Palmer turns in one of the best scripts of the first season so far.

Sharon Duce looks gorgeously fab as hippy would be revolutionary Tricia who shelters Thomas (played by future Poldark star Robin Ellis).

classic quote
“You know with those glasses you really should have joined the KGB” – suspect Clifford to Ward.
