Thirteen Against Fate: The Traveller (Le Voyageur de la Toussaint)

on BBC One London

Stories by Georges Simenon
Dramatised by Stanley Miller
Starring Kenneth J. Warren, Hywel Bennett

"...As good as any Maigret in its impact and dramatic entertainment. The atmosphere was strong and there was more contrast in the characters than usual. Under the direction of Herbert Wise the gradual progress of the silent hero from ignorance to a full knowledge of his power was excellently drawn by Hywel Bennett". (Glasgow Herald)
"The sense of inhabiting the places in which the stories occur gives a riveting conviction to BBC-1's 'Thirteen Against Fate'. Last night you could almost smell the tang of the Atlantic and taste the apple brandy. Hywel Bennett pulled off the difficult job of conveying honesty without priggishness". (Daily Sketch)
