Crime drama serial Flower of Evil saw holidaying Detective Inspector Mitchell caught up in a murder case whilst in Austria with his wife.
Original Radio Times publicity… Detective Inspector Mitchell and his wife Ann, on holiday in Austria, become involved with the mysterious Narcissus organization run by a Doctor Mylanos and his assistant Erika. Lovers of the thriller serial Flower Of Evil know by now that the holiday Scotland Yard Inspector Mitchell and his wife Ann sought in a little Austrian mountain village has turned into a nightmare. Rmours of Nazi treasure hidden in the area, then an out-of-season flower found floating in a bath beside the body of a murdered man. Co-opted into the investigation by patient Inspector Weidig of the Austrian police, Mitchell has hit on the fact that the “nature camp” is actually the headquarters of a neo-Nazi organization which has the narcissus as its emblem. Meanwhile, Chick, the breezy Welshman staying at the Mitchells’ hotel, has revealed himself as a British agent. So what is the goal of the naricissus gang? The treaure – or something far more sinister? All Mitchell and his allies know is that events are moving towards a desperate climax.
In tonight’s episode, the fifth of the six, you can see Meredith Edwards as that dogged philosopher, Inspector Weidig. Edwards has toned down his familiar Welsh characterization and accent for his part in this Edward Mason-Ted Willis story, but his countryman David Davies is perfectly at home as the Welshman Chick.
