Bergerac: When Did You Last See Your Father? (BBC-1 4 Mar 1989, with Benedict Taylor)



In When Did You Last See Your Father? Jim and the Bureau are called in when a girl is found attacked on a ferry after it docks on the island. She is an exotic dancer due to start work at a club on the island.

She was seen drinking with a young local, Tom St Clements. Because St Clements has form Barney is sure St Clements is the guilty party. He, though, insists that the girl was spending time with another island boy. Toby Lemaire, the cocky scion of the very wealthy Roger Lemaire, who also happens to be a noted barrister and the current Mayor of Jersey.

Barney is keen to wrap the case up and certainly doesn’t want it to be Lemaire’s son who is the guilty party.

There is a subplot, only there to give Susan and Charlie something to do, with Charlie thinking of selling his house and wanting Susan’s advice as an ex real estate agent. Susan then calls on Charlie to help with a series of interviews she is conducting. Although as the episode progresses it’s Charlie who moves centre stage and actually saves Jim.

Dominic Taylor plays Toby Lemaire, he scored quite a few lead roles in the 1980’s in erie such as Beau Geste and My Brother Jonathan, he has remained a solid character player since.
