The Agatha Christie Hour: The Case of the Middle-aged Wife/In..., DVD



Two episodes of the early 1980s BBC drama series based on the short stories of crime writer Agatha Christie.

In 'The Case of the Middle-Aged Wife' Maria Packington (Gwen Watford) is dismayed that her husband George (Peter Jones) has been paying more attention to his young secretary than to her.

When she answers a newspaper advertisement, she soon finds herself swept off her feet by the handsome Claude Luttrell (Rupert Frazer). 'In a Glass Darkly' stars Nicholas Clay as Matthew Armitage, a weekend house guest at an engagement party.

While there, he is alarmed by a vision he sees in his mirror of a man with a scarred neck strangling Sylvia (Emma Piper), the daughter of the house.

He tells Sylvia of his premonition, and she breaks off the engagement - but is that really all there is to it?
