"I am going to Inverness!". - Though he never does! I always remembered this one for that very line!
From the four released so far, this is the best, and may be the best of the whole series, though I remember the nun one being very good too. I wish they would hurry up and release the rest. I want them all! Anyway, back to this one, Ian McKellan is extremely good and effective as a nice, rather colourless little man going to work every day and not interfering with anyone but minding his own business and being very self contained, and then some weird bird watcher type accosts him on a train, with tales of tape recordings, one of which he 'accidentally' leaves with Mr Skipling (McKellan's character) by mistake, and this, Mr Skipling later listens to at home, and this is where it gets a bit creepy and very absorbing. The character who was always going to Inverness, (but never going) was a brilliant character also and probably would not be out of place in some James Bond type espionage movie. This story in the series has such great atmosphere and is worth watching for repeated viewings, whereas the next one in the series, "The Victim", I found rather tedious and got bored after a while. This one, on the other hand, was excellent and I wish there had been more episodes as it could have easily carried them.
