Doctor Who star Jon Pertwee is your host in this highly popular, light-hearted panel game where viewers are invited to play detective - pitting their wits against a panel of celebrities to solve a fictitious murder mystery.
The show's brilliantly original formula, devised by comedians Lance Percival and Jeremy Lloyd, presented short dramas laden with clues and red herrings to be pieced together by the celebrity panellists, who would then question the characters involved and finally point the finger at the most likely suspect.
Lively repartee is the order of the day, and joining Pertwee and his regular panellists Patrick Mower and Anouska Hempel in this third series is a veritable who's who of 1970s television: Honor Blackman, Diana Dors, Richard O'Sullivan, Paula Wilcox, Magnus Pyke, Jackie Collins, Wendy Craig, Liver Birds Polly James and Nerys Hughes, Derek Nimmo and Bond girl Julie Ege are among the guests trying to track down whodunnit . Also included is A Piece of Cake, a special Christmas mystery from 1974.

1. 'A Piece of Cake'. A Christmas special, most noteworthy for a rather wonderful little altercation between Eamonn Andrews and Hughie Green. Don't worry, they are in character and as wooden as two oak trees. But money can't buy that sort of entertainment.
2. 'Portrait In Black'. All about photographic darkrooms, so a real trip down a technological Memory Lane. Patricia Brake is one of the suspects, as is 'The Chinese Detective', David Yip. 'Camp' doesn't even begin to describe his performance.
3. 'Final Drive'. Aimi MacDonald is one of the panellists. I seem to remember her being everywhere in the seventies and, for the life of me, I cannot even begin to figure out why. Having watched her in this episode, I am still none the wiser. She is attractive though, I'll give her that - although anyone sat next to Alfred Marks cannot fail to look more attractive than him, as entertaining as he is.
4. 'Pop Goes The Weasel'. The mother lode of popular seventies personalities this one... quite apart from Patrick Mower. Half the cast of 'Citizen Smith', two thirds of 'Man About The House' and what's-his-name from 'Bless This House'. Richard O' Sullivan is on fine form with his cheeky remarks but, as always, Jon Pertwee keeps him firmly under control.
5. 'Evidence of Death'. A fair few noteables in this one as well. Burt Kwouk, having obtained a night off from duffing up Peter Sellers...Read more ›
This 3-disc set includes the entire ten part third series originally broadcast in August-October 1975. As in the last series Jon Pertwee hosts the proceedings. It features a cast of famous actors camping it up in the whodunnit playlets including Hildegarde Neil, Robert Lyndsay, David Yip, Simon Rouse (Superintendent Jack Meadows in The Bill), Burt Kwouk, Simon Williams, Nicola Pagett, William Russell, Ronald Hines and future playwright Kevin Elyot. Regular panel guests are Patrick Mower and Anouska Hempel while others include Wendy Craig, Leslie Crowther, Alfred Marks, Jackie Collins, Richard O'Sullivan, Paula Wilcox, Diana Dors, Rodney Bewes, Terry Scott and Jackie Collins.
As always the stories are mixed, some work very well but others are a little fanciful. If you don't just want to wallow in 1970s nostalgia but enjoy, as I do, trying to work out who committed the murder then you may be disappointed by a few of the entries. Particularly bad is the series opener Portrait In Black which is enjoyable with a good cast and some amusing moments but has an ending that is just too simple with no proper explanation. But don't let that put you off, this is a superb slice of 70s fun. And also included is the 1974 Christmas special A Piece Of Cake which features cameo appearances by Jeremy Lloyd and Lance Percival along with Eamon Andrews and Hughie Green.
PS: This show was superbly spoofed on the David Renwick-Andrew Marshall penned LWT 1978 comedy series End Of Part One with a panel of Jon Pertwee lookalikes competing to solve the crime (this series is being released on DVD in November 2012).
John Pertwee is a seriously cool guy and is great in this.
Jon Pertwee makes a superb chairman and the stars of the seventies from Magnus Pyke to Honor Blackman and from Terry Scott to Jackie Collins join regulars Anouska Hempel and Patrick Mower in trying to crack the cases. How they go about doing so gives considerable insight into their thought processes and how they must make everyday decisions.
There are moments of breathtaking political incorrectness - common to most television of this era - which is certainly 'of its time', but there is little here that will offend for long. All in all, just sit back and enjoy. They really don't make 'em like this any more.

Featuring dodgy sets, acting and a flamboyant Jon 'Dr Who' Pertwee as host (well it was the 1970s!) this was a watchable little series. Read morePublished on 4 July 2013 by cantsec
