Zodiac: Saturn’s Rewards (ITV 18 Mar 1974, with Ian Ogilvy)



In Saturn’s Rewards politician Richard Meade in best Rear Window style sees a murder committed in the apartment across from his. With Grad investigating, Meade decides to be less than forthcoming with what he exactly saw because he had a ‘lady of the night’ with him.

Things take a disturbing turn when Meade is introduced to his daughter’s new boyfriend, Martin Seacombe, who Meade very quickly realises is the murderer.

Another strong cast of guest stars led by Ian Ogilvy as bad egg Martin Seacombe, as well as Joanna David, Peter Vaughan and Dinah Sheridan. Watch out too for Ian Olgilvy’s dodgy fake moustache which looks like it is on the verge of coming off at any second.
