TV Aphrodite Inheritance, The (BBC-1 1979, Peter McEnery, Alexandra Bastedo) Published 4 years ago on April 30, 2015 In The Aphrodite Inheritance David Collier learns that his engineer brother has been badly injured in an accident whilst in Cyprus (where he is working) he flies over to visit him only to find that he has died from his injuries. The arrival of a beautiful lady called Helene and a brief case containing over 50,000 pounds causes David to believe his brother may have been murdered. Determined to uncover the true facts he is soon tangling with some unsavoury characters, including a wealthy yacht residing American, who all seem to know more than they are revealing. Collier is also convinced Helene has lots of secrets about his brother. Helene meanwhile, along with two “colleagues” Charalambos and Basileos seems to have some rather special talents. Hot on the heels of his superb series Who Pays The Ferryman, Michael J. Bird returns to the region for another slice of top quality intrigue filled drama. Where as Ferryman was more traditional The Aphrodite Inheritance has a distinctly other worldly quality about it. To say more would ruin the intrigue and mystery. production details UK / BBC One – Cyprus Broadcasting Corporation / 8×50 minute episodes / Broadcast 1979 Writer: Michael J.
