Thriller: Sign It Death (ITV 9 Mar 1974, Francesca Annis)

In Sign It Death, the last Thriller episode of season two Francesca Annis stars as Tracy Conway who develops a deadly crush on a businessman she bumps into in the street, it isn’t long before she has bumped off his secretary, taken her place and made her self indespensible. Realising that Main is very much in love with his wife Conway decides that she must kill again.

A great finish to the second season with a strong central performance from the gorgeous Ms Annis, it’s made clear from the outset that she has psychotic tendencies. The episodes opens with the murder of another businessman and although we don’t see her face it is obviously supposed to be Tracy Conway. Sheila Fearn, best known for her roles in Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads and George and Mildred, plays the secretary that is murdered by Annis so that she can take her place and be closer to Richard.
