In With Intent To Deceive Mrs Molly Foster is purported to have acted as a clairvoyant for monetary gain and used fake equipment. It’s a prosecution under the fraudulent mediums act of 1951.
Mrs Trafford is played by Pauline Delany who at the time was making the odd appearance on fellow Thames show Public Eye and in a nice bit of Public Eye continuity her husband Norman is played by Ray Smith who was also a regular on that series playing Detective Inspector Percy Firbank.
The accused is played by Alethea Charlton who the following year would go on to a major role in popular series Sam as also would Ray Smith, in fact the two played a married a couple!
It’s another interesting episode with an unusual subject (although Wicca and spiritualism was enjoying something of a renaissance in the early 1970’s), it’s soon very obvious that the Traffords are not being exactly honest with the truth and have their own reasons for wanting to strike out at Mrs Foster.
“How did you know she was psychic.”
“Oh everybody knows down our way.”
