Season 1 Ep.10: The Manhood Of Edward Robinson
Romantic dreamer and aspiring stockbroker Edward Robinson is engaged to practical and prosaic Maud Lithinglow. When he wins five hundred pounds in a competition he secretly purchases his heart’s delight, a white Riley sportscar. At Christmas time he motors alone down to Brighton where he meets Lady Noreen Elliot, who is similarly engaged to an unadventurous partner. For one glorious, heady evening Edward mixes it with the Bright Young People, becoming involved in the theft of a priceless diamond necklace and dancing at The Cafe de Paris with Lady Noreen. In the course of one evening Edward becomes a man, instead of a mouse, and when morning arrives it is a different Edward who confronts Maud with his new car, expensive engagement ring and marriage plans.
This ten episode program was based on ten short stories written by Agatha Christie but with wide-ranging themes.
Some were romances, several had supernatural themes, and a couple were youthful adventures. They were set in the England of the nineteen twenties and thirties, and much care was taken to present them as authentically as possible, with great attention to detail.
Their common link was that all came from the talented pen of Agatha Christie, all were entertaining, and each program was carefully crafted and well cast, with many of the best of Britain’s actors represented.

Maurice Denham, Angela Easterling and Christopher Wren
