Not a bad episode. The original story was included in French editions of Sherlock Holmes at one time, as a sort of "lost" Holmes story.

And this hit the airwaves again on 12 February 2008 when it was aired on "When Radio Was" last week.

That's interesting. I think this particular story was an unusual choice for Escape. The original work doesn't have a lot of dialogue, and it isn't the kind of written work that is easily adapted for radio. Yet, they did a good job of it. - Christine

This episode has great backround music especially in the beginning, the deep organ rifts are very cool!

I prefer the Suspense version of this story, I think. I think the setup of a soon to be executed prisoner trying to blackmail his former "customers" into springing him added a lot to the story.

And are my ears playing tricks on me, or is the name he began to read "Charles Foster..." as in Charles Foster Kane of Citizen Kane fame?
