TV Armchair Theatre: Edward The Confessor (ITV 1969, Ian Holm, Alfred Burke) Published 3 years ago on June 9, 2016 Drama Edward The Confessor was an entry in the Armchair Theatre strand. Edward Gobey is something of a Billy Liar character, his job as social surveyor brings him into contact with lots of housewives but it seems his questioning style leaves a lot to be desired. Meanwhile he has also developed a habit of confessing to murder at his local police station much to their annoyance. Gobey is also not happy about the amount of time his landlady, Mrs Blaxhill is spending with her new friend Gland. Always good to see Beryl Reid in a starring role and Alfred Burke was riding high at the time thanks to his starring role in crime drama Public Eye. production details UK / ITV – Thames / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast Monday 24 February 1969 @ 8.30pm Writer: Leigh Vance / Story Editor: Monica Menell / Production Design: Tony Borer / Producer: Leonard White / Director: Henry Kaplan Series: Armchair Theatre / Season 12 Episode 8 cast Beryl Reid as Mrs Blaxill Ian Holm as Edward Gobey Alfred Burke as Gland William Abney as Detective Inspector Sheffield Michael Dawson as Constable Tapp Murray Noble as Policeman Parnell McGarry as Housewife Miranda Marshall as Woman Angela Rooks as Y.W.C.A.
