Hypnotism-themed murder case for Colonel March
5 October 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

A rather straightforward murder case for Colonel March. This episode is a throwback to the classic 'old dark house' type films of the 1930s and beyond, in which a bunch of friends and relatives turn up at a spooky old mansion to listen to a lawyer reading the will of a deceased person. After a brutal murder takes place, March employs some unusual methods to crack the case.

COLONEL MARCH OF Scotland YARD was a TV series that flirted with the supernatural on more than one occasion but the only outre element of this episode is method March uses to solve the crime: he hypnotises a room full of people in order to gain a confession. It's unusual indeed, even if the denouement is resolutely ordinary; still, there are familiar faces like Patrick Barr and Alfred Burke hanging around the scenery, so it's not all bad.
