The Hanged Man: Knave of Coins (ITV 1 Mar 1975, William Russell)

Published

on


In Knave of Coins Alan and Lew take a trip to Switzerland to tangle with a highly crooked financier who, believing that Lew is dead, has embezzled a huge chunk of money from him which he plans to siphon into a revolution in Arabia. When it proves hard to bring the financier to book Crowe calls on some of his mercenary “friends” to help.

Lew Burnett is a classic character, hard as nails and doesn’t care whether he is dealing with a Swiss business bigwig who has ripped him off or threatening a pair of police detectives. Also for someone who is supposed to be undercover as a dead man he isn’t shy about letting people know he is still alive.

There is an excellent guest appearance from William “Dr Who” Russell looking very different with his comb over and glasses.
