Campion: Death of a Ghost

Campion: Death of a Ghost

Director: Michael Owen Morris Cast: Peter Davison, Brian Glover, Andrew Burt



Peter Davison stars as bespectacled, aristocratic private detective Albert Campion in this two-part adaptation of Margery Allingham's novel Death of a Ghost. Each year, the friends of a deceased painter gather to unveil one of his final 12 paintings. It is during one of these annual unveilings that the lights suddenly go out--and when they go back on again, a rather unpleasant young artist named Dacre (Patrick Bailey) turns up murdered. Before long, Dacre's own painting begin mysteriously vanishing. Campion has a pretty good idea who is the killer and thief, but Inspector Oakes (Andrew Burt) is not so easily persuaded--at least, not until murder rears its ugly head yet again. In America, Death of a Ghost was telecast November 9 and 16, 1989, as part of the PBS anthology Mystery!.
