TV Armchair Thriller: The Limbo Connection (ITV 1978, James Bolam, Rosalind Ayres) Published 3 years ago on June 4, 2016 In Armchair Thriller serial The Limbo Connection film writer Mark Omney becomes sure that something sinister has happened to his newspaper journalist wife Clare after she pays a visit to a private “health” clinic and then disappears. It appears that somebody is doing there best to make it look like Clare has simply run off with a new lover but as Mark digs deeper into the the strange Meadowbank Clinic he becomes convinced that the secret to his wife’s disappearance lies in the activities of the staff of the Clinic. Drawn into helping Mark is old flame, actress Annabella Fraser. James Bolam plays Omney with a great degree of world wearyness, Mark has been not only suffering from a bad case of writers block but is practically stumbling into alcoholism but funnily enough gains something of a sense of purpose in the search for his wife. The vibe of the story, which is very enjoyable and has some excellent dialogue, is akin to a Francis Durbridge Presents and Melissa in particular. Each episode of The Limbo Connection also featured a very groovy opening narration recap, a bit like Crown Court, just in case we had forgotten what had happened previously or were new to the series. James Bolam as Mark Omney and Christopher Benjamin as Detective Inspector Tarrant. production details UK / ITV Network – Thames / 6×30 minute episodes / Broadcast 2 – 18 May 1978 (episodes twice weekly Tuesdays and Thursdays @ 8.30pm) Writer: Philip Mackie / Novel: Derry Quinn / Script Executive: Joan Rodker / Theme Music: Andy Mackay / Incidental Music: Denis King / Story Editor: Robert Banks Stewart / Production Design: David Marshall / Producer: Jacqueline Davis / Director: Robert Tronson Armchair Thriller Serial Five cast JAMES BOLAM as Mark Omney ROSALIND AYRES as Annabella Fraser MICHAEL CULVER as Dr Walcott Brown BEATRIX LEAHMANN as Blanche Terraine SUZANNE BERTISH as Clare Omney JAMES BERWICK as Colonel Forde GRAHAM ROWE as Mr Carson Clark GEORGINE ANDERSON as Mrs Forde PATRICIA LAWRENCE as Mrs Carson Clark TRICIA GEORGE as Melissa Carson Clark ARTHUR BLAKE as Mr Dyer ISABELLE AYMES as Julie Villiers AIMEE DELAMAIN as Mrs Franklyn TONY MATHEWS as George Beatty VASS ANDERSON as Soames ALAN FORD as Bill YVONNE EDGELL as Margaret ANTON PHILLIPS as Barman WILLIAM MOORE as Landlord CHRISTOPHER BENJAMIN as Detective Inspector Tarrant SAM SEWELL as Detective Constable Barnes PETER WELCH as Mechanic HAROLD GOODWIN as Kibble FRANK DUNCAN as Recap Announcer Andy MackayArmchair ThrillerBeatrix LeahmanChristopher BenjaminCrime And MysteryDenis KingHarold GoodwinITVJacqueline DavisJames BolamMichael CulverPhilip MackieRobert Banks StewartRobert TronsonRosalind AyresSuzanne BertishThamesTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in TV1 day ago This Is Personal: The Hunt for the Yorkshire Ripper (ITV 2000, Alun Armstrong, Richard Ridings) Period crime drama serial.
