Scotland Yard Inspector George Gideon starts his day off on the wrong foot when he gets a traffic-violation ticket from a young police officer. From there, his 'typical day" consists in learning that one of his most- trusted detectives has accepted bribes; hunts an escaped maniac who has murdered a girl; tracks a young girl suspected of a payroll robbery and, then, helps break up a bank robbery. Commander George Gideon of London's Scotland Yard is a fictional policeman created by John Creasey under the pseudonym J.J. Marric. He appeared in the first of 26 police procedural novels by Creasey, Gideon's Day, in 1955.

The outcome is well worth the wait. It has a good balance of humour and reality. The settings are very good and the film, itself, has a very realistic feel about it.
The picture and sound quality are good. It is a colour print.
However, it was a reasonable plot but was unfortunately spoilt by some unbelievable characters and some ham acting.
I recorded this thing (I hesitate to call it a film) the other day, and will probably keep it simply in order to prove to myself down the line that I didn't hallucinate the gob-smacking awfulness of this entity.
