WOW! I smiled throughout this episode due to the clever writing and the excellent acting. Engaging storytelling with lush descriptions in addition to EG's spot on reflections. Highly recommended!

Great episode. I enjoyed all aspects of it. Recommended!

This is a great episode, one you should listen to twice! Once to take in the story on face value, as a romantic escapade, and the second time as a psychological descent to madness. When you listen realize how original this was in 1976! So many movies and TV episodes have since borrowed and stolen from the themes here, but realize that in 1976 this was very original writing by Ian Martin.
