New Scotland Yard: All That Glitters (ITV 18 May 1974)



In All That Glitters Clay and Dexter investigate a missing person aboard a cargo ship. The twist being that not only is a crew member missing but part of it’s valuable cargo of Gold Bullion is missing too.

Customs think the crew member must have managed to get the gold off the ship somehow but for Clay and Dexter it’s not that straightforward.

We know though that two other crew members McNeil and Palmer have killed him after he discovered them during the robbery.

Stephen Yardley and Billy Murray guest star as the villains with Yardley putting on a bit of a dodgy Scottish accent.
