Critical reception

The Radio Times wrote, "not one of his (Maurice Elvey's) best efforts. We could do with more surprises, but the pace is unrelenting and there are typically solid performances from Mary Germaine, William Sylvester and John Arnatt"; [2] and TV Guide called it "ordinary but fast paced." [3]
