    Summary

    “I don't have near-death experiences. I have near-you experiences. Death might actually be restful.” 

    It's been almost a whole week, and none of Jeff's clients or subjects have tried to kill him or anyone else.

    Or in which Marty has the wrong end of the stick until he doesn't, Jeff has no ready cash but plans to change that, Jeannie has a new dress that might not have been the best idea and there might just be a ghost in the garage or a body in the brewery.

    Summary

    Coda. One of the darker episodes, Donald James' screenplay 'Could You Recognise The Man Again?' first aired in January 1970, and has poor Jean Hopkirk abducted and held hostage by the Rodens, a family of gangsters in the style of the Kray twins, to prevent her and Jeff testifying against George Roden (Stanley Meadows) in a murder trial. Jeannie's dangerous predicament really disturbed me, not least because it's inferred that Mort Roden (Dudley Sutton) would like to play more than cat and mouse with her. As Jeff and Marty's search for her descends into an ever-decreasing circle, Jean is left to fend off Mort's lecherous advances, aware that only the presence of his mother is holding him back. When Mrs Roden leaves for her other son's trial, Mort attacks ... Jeannie is spared at the last moment, of course, and whisked off to court to testify, but it was too close for comfort. I had to write this for Jeannie, as an outlet for the tension in the episode; not a lot happens, but Marty, Jeannie and Jeff finally have time to reflect.
