Michael Bird created Cretan drama mainly carried by the two stars, Ian Hendry and Wanda Ventham as bar owners Erik and Ann Shepherd. Both characters have had a traumatic past and Ann has been to required to marry Erik so she can act as a sleeper agent on the Greek island. This improbable scenario set as a backdrop for the nine episodes featuring ex-pats living on the island for various reasons. The quality of the stories is patchy and some develop and conclude in an unpleasant manner. In addition to the rough diamond Erik, well played by Ian Hendry and the sensuous Wanda Ventham, whose presence makes the stories watchable. In addition, Maurice Denham makes the most of his role as Nestor, while Julia Goodman gives her character an innocent beauty.
Well worth seeing, but not comfortable viewing.
