Thriller: A Place To Die (ITV 26 May 1973 with Bryan Marshall)

Published

on


In A Place To Die Dr Nelson moves to a small village with his new American wife, the villagers though seem more than a little keen on this moon pale and moon gold lady. It soon becomes clear that there is something very sinister going on.

The villagers are all very Cold Comfort Farm and one can imagine that Clemens had not long seen The Wicker Man given the fact that the plotline seems to be closely modelled on it. This was though the first episode not scripted by Clemens although the original storyline was his.

A curious point worth mentioning is that in all of these early episodes of Thriller the married couples share a bedroom but not a bed! All very 1930’s Hollywood.

Cast wise there are minor roles for the likes of Dads Army’s Arnold Ridley and Glynn Edwards (better known as Dave the barman from Minder), Alexandra Hay dies quite young in 1993 and she was a former model (you can tell too) who made her TV debut in an episode of The Monkees.
