Rising novelist Peter Darwin (Robert Urquhart) has a row with former mistress Claire (Elizabeth Kentish), and accidentally kills her. He somehow manages to persuades his reluctant fiance Kay (Noelle Middleton) to help him bury Claire's body in a wood. But when the body is found and a blackmailing journalist (Peter Reynolds) appears on the scene, Darwin resorts to desperate measures to cover his tracks, including framing innocent people.


Critical reception

TV Guide concluded there was "Nothing much to get excited about";[3] while My Reviewer found the film "full of action from the off and whilst it all feels a little dated now, it has a certain old school charm – like the very best of ITC shows from back in the day";[4] and Blueprint Review wrote, "Despite its rather stagey tone You Can’t Escape remains a fun example of British B-movies from that era."[5]
