Colonel March at the beauty salon
5 October 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

A more light-hearted episode of the Colonel March TV show. This one features a dog again although it's marginally more interesting than the one about the kidnapped poodle. The action is set in and around a hairdressers, of all places, and once again a stabbing takes place. When March and Inspector Ames show up, they discover that some of the people in the place aren't quite who they admit to being, and the hunt for the murderer ensues.

March and Inspector Ames share plenty of repartee in this rather stodgy story that involves hidden identities and skeletons in the closet. It's only the acting of the principal characters that keeps you watching really as it's entirely forgettable otherwise. Elspet Gray and Patrick Holt show up, but the lack of any bizarre elements make this one a bit of a chore to sit through.
