In "Drury's Bones," Boris Karloff stars in a Christmas episode about an amnesiac turned police detective-- who suspects himself of murder!
The story began on December 28, 1910, when a man woke up injured and alone in a dark London alley. He stumbled through the streets until he found a lighted office building. There, they took him in and sent for a doctor. When they asked him his name...the man didn't know it! The doctor proclaimed that the man had amnesia.
So, they named him Terrence Drury and gave him a job...in the London office of Scotland Yard. Drury did so well that he eventually became a full fledged inspector, but twenty years passed without a clue to his own identity.
Then, Drury was assigned to a case where an old human skeleton was found in a man's backyard. He traveled to a small fishing village in Devon where the bones were found. But those bones may have something to do with his own past...
"Drury's Bones" was written by Harold Swanton and produced/directed by William Spier. Boris Karloff starred. This episode aired on January 25, 1945. William Johnstone, Wally Maher, and Joseph Kearns also appeared. The names of the other members of the cast aren't given. (So, the actress who played Mrs. Tumbley is not getting the credit she deserves!)
As an added bonus, Elsa Maxwell makes not just one but two appearances during the commercial breaks to knock her common sense approach to hospitality into our heads.
