H.G. WELLS' INVISIBLE MAN: Play To Kill

Guest Stars:  Lisa Daniely, Helen Cherry, Colin Gordon, Hugh Latimer, Garry Thorne
Directed by Peter Maxwell
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

A celebrated actress accidentally kills a pedestrian with her car, but a bystander's insistence to forget the incident ever happened weighs heavily on her conscience.

Something of a departure from past episodes, with a more intricate plot and a more minor role for Brady, this installment is also perhaps non-coincidentally in the hands of a director other than Pennington Richards, who helmed each of the series' earlier adventures.  Although it doesn't wander far from the series' typical formula, there is a bit of a fresh approach, which I found welcome.
