Thriller: The Colour Of Blood (ITV 12 May 1973, Norman Eshley)

In The Colour Of Blood a first season episode of Thriller a young real estate agent is travelling by train to meet a prospective buyer for a remote house in the country, however the man she meets on the train is not the man she thinks he is but a just escaped killer who has a particular penchant for blondes.

A very good indeed central performance by Norman Eshley and a brilliant ending make this one of the real gems of the whole Thriller series. The atmosphere is generally creepy and well maintained throughout.
