The Guardians: Quarmby (ITV 7 Aug 1971, with Petra Davies)



In Quarmby the Home Secretary, has been killed by the father of young Wilson who was executed after being convicted of a petty crime. He himself was then shot, not by a Guardian but by a long range sniper to make it look like it was a Guardian killing.

Interestingly it appears that anybody who is working for the resistance is actually Quarmby. The whole movement being so called.
