Villains: Move In, Move On (ITV 9 Sep 1972, William Marlowe)



The excellent William Marlowe takes centre stage in Move In, Move On (he has made the most appearances in the series so far, (this made his fourth appearance out of 8 episodes), in fact all of the gang make an appearance (in flashback form of the planning robbery) and there is a good crossover with the previous episode Belinda with several scenes from that now seen from Bill’s point of view.

As the episode opens Bill Whittaker is now living in Portugal under an assumed name but isn’t happy, especially hen he feels his neighbours are getting a little too nosy.

For the first time we actually get to see the planning and carrying out of the robbery with Bill masterminding and George organising.
