atv-logo-1960s

Drama The Accomplices was broadcast under the Play of the Week banner and focused on the police looking into the mysterious death of a woman but it seems some people have things they don’t want revealed.

Completely forgotten now, this was a typical entry in the series. The cast was excellent though including Angela Baddeley (better known as Mrs Bridges from Upstairs Downstairs and a pre-fame Iain Cuthbertson.
