STRANGE REPORT starring Anthony Quayle

Adam Strange (Quayle) is a retired police detective turned criminologist who solves obscure and sometimes bizarre crimes. There are sixteen episodes in this DVD set, and every episode is first class and totally absorbing, all episodes are mainly highly relevant to, and evocative of, the late 1960s.

Strange has two part time assistants, Evelyn MacLean (Wills) an artist and model who lives in an adjoining apartment. Sometimes she helps in the investigation, but more often provides light relief in an avuncular relationship with Strange, supplying food, and comforting females in distress. Wills is very good in this (her final appearance as an actress) and her character works very well providing color to Strange?s rather laid back manner.

The other assistant Ham Gynt (Garas) is a part time forensic scientist who works in the laboratory in Strange?s apartment. I feel Garas is miscast in this role (alternatively there is a basic flaw in the character that the screen plays cannot put right). There are many delights amongst the supporting actors, Martin Shaw three years out of drama school in his first (and quite substantial) TV role, a very young Keith Baron, an immediately post ?Redcap? John Thaw, Barbara Murray who was better known at the time as John Wilder?s wife in ?The Power Game?, together with all the regulars of the late 60s.
