An homage to the British murder mysteries of the early s, Dagger has its admirers. I fall firmly into the latter category. Still, even a poor Columbo has redeeming features and even Dagger of the Mind is no exception. So here I put forward my top 5 episode highlights. Read on if you dare! Despite putting in performances so wooden that trees felt ashamed by association , Honor Blackman and Richard Baseheart, as murderous theatrical duo Lilian Stanhope and Nicholas Frame, did at least fully commit to the nonsensical story line.

Producer Sir Roger Haversham had been Lillian's lover but finds out he has been deceived by the couple and is ab out to cancel their widely anticipated and lucrative engagement. During a dressing room brawl between the three, Haversham is accidentally killed when he is hit in the head by a projectile thrown by Stanhope. As Haversham had not been seen by any of the cast or crew before he entered the couple's dressing room, the couple decide to hide his body and later take the corpse to his mansion and stage his "accidental" death.
Or will this fish out of water be out his depth alongside the pride of Scotland Yard? Or he did — up until today. A one-in-a-million shot, it shivers Sir Roger on the noggin and kills him outright. They stuff Sir Roger in a trunk and take to the stage. Stage doorman Joe is tinkering with the heater in her dressing room, even wanting the trunk moved at one point. Death by cold cream! Could you Adam and Eve it?
