This final, feature-length episode in the Armchair Thriller series sees the navy accused of a cover-up when a jury returns a verdict of accidental death of a crew member on one of its ships. Larry Lamb stars as the Chief Petty Officer aboard, who believes the death is part of a much bigger conspiracy.

Interesting in many ways. Interesting to see what Larry Lamb, (Peggy Mitchell's evil husband Archie from 'Eastenders'!) looked like when he was young. Interesting to see the old Southern TV logo display at the end after the credits have rolled, (haven't seen that onscreen for years) instead of the usual night time scene of the familiar Thames TV logo used throughout the rest of this series, and altogether an interesting drama enfolding of dodgy goings on in the navy, where all is not as it seems when an officer is witnessed being a bit sleazy in a casino, but later denies to the person who saw him that he was even there.
Then the guy who insisted that he did see him, gets bumped off, and our hero (Lamb) sets about proving that Officer Cabal really was where he was seen and that the navy are covering up something they shouldn't. Actually he is meddling in something he should really have left alone, but he isn't to know that, and this is what makes the story: what happens as a result of his meddling.
A very good if slightly sinister performance from the chap playing the Naval police inspector and good performances from everyone involved make this a very worthwhile entry indeed in the Armchair Thriller series, and in fact a lot better than many of them. (Having seen most now, I'd say, in my opinion, the best is Dying Day, closely followed by Quiet as a Nun, and if you haven't seen either of those two, then you should rectify that straight away! Or at least as soon as possible). Anyhow, if you are collecting the series (or even if you aren't but just like good quality 70s tv drama) then this is a worthy addition to any collection!

A gem of early 80's television from the vaults of ITV (Southern TV) with a strong cast led by Larry Lamb with, amongst others, a fine supporting role from the gorgeous Cheri lunghi. The naval story line is strong and easily overcomes any fear of dating providing an intriguing tale of espionage and double agents inside government and the armed forces. The story flows very nicely and the fast pace makes the 100 minutes fly past keeping you glued to the screen. From a nostalgic perspective it's really enjoyable seeing all the landscapes, cars, fashions etc from over thirty years ago which along with the intriguing weaving tale offers a really enjoyable viewing experience. A welcome release on DVD and well worth watching!

I gave this DVD a 4 star rating because I found it very enjoyable. I remember the Armchair Thriller programmes from the 1970s and 80s and i have the complete Thames Television series on DVD so I was hoping I could get the Southern Televison produced programmes to complete the set.

I found the storyline interesting and enjoyable and it was very interesting to see future Eastenders stars Larry Lamb and Jamie Forman in earlier roles.
