I bought this just because the wonderful Bill Bixby stars and I've always liked a good mystery. Watching, I still couldn't shake the feeling that it was David Banner in England, without the Hulk. I didn't expect much more from a 1982 TV movie. The set up was intriguing. An old woman befriends Bixby's character, Luke Williams, on a train. She outright tells him she suspects foul play going on in her peaceful town. After that, she is killed in a hit and run. This sends up major red flags and Luke forgoes his vacation and throws himself into the case, despite the fact that he is NOT a detective, but a probability/Computer analyst. Once he's settled People die mysteriously each day, but you don't get any emotion from the cold and callous Brits that are involved. Only the American Luke seems to care that something is amiss and that innocent people are dead, but even that is half-hearted.
The romance that blossoms between Luke and one of the suspects seems forced and unbelievable, even if it is the beautiful Leslie-Ann Down.
All in all, I rate it 4, because..I love Bill and there is a very good turn from the always lovely Olivia De-Havilland. Toward the end you are left with 2 prime suspects and it leaves you in suspense, but it's not too hard to deduce. The cheerful resolution and explanations don't ring true, but maybe that's just me. I would be hightailing it out of there and very strung up for a while after all that!
