Killer (ITV 1984, John Thaw, Edward Woodward)

Killer Waiting John Thaw

Killer was a short run umbrella title for three thrillers made by Yorkshire TV each with a killer, naturally enough, as it’s theme.

The first was Killer Waiting with John Thaw as a retired solider targeted by a hitman. The second was Killer Exposed starring Anthony Valentine as a dentist with a fatal attraction. Both of these were written by Eric Wendell.

Finally there was Killer Contract written by Robin Chapman, with Edward Woodward as a businessman whose daughter is threatened.
