Maigret at Bay
Rupert Davies returns in his most famous role for Play of the Month's presentation of Simenon's recent Maigret novel - tonight at 8.15
Even Commissaire Maigret must get old one day, and in Maigret at Bay he is beginning to feel his age.
He is, naturally, as busy as ever and particularly concerned with a chain of daring jewel-robberies. But, all the same, he is only five years off retirement and a little worried about his weight, his insomnia, his restless habit of looking out of windows, which Dr. Pardon says is a symptom of claustrophobia.
Mme. Maigret thinks they should be looking round for a cottage in the country; a place where property is still reasonable and the fishing good.
It is unfortunate for Maigret that he should be having one of his wakeful nights when a girl called Nicole telephones him. She is a stranger to Paris and obviously very distressed. She has fallen into bad company and been doped and robbed.
Maigret goes to her rescue - after all, he's not sleepy! The next day he is summoned to the Prefet - a new-broom who disapproves of Maigret's highly personal methods - and is handed a deposition made by Nicole in which she accuses Maigret of attempted rape...
Donald Bull, himself one-time editor of the Maigret series, has dramatised Simenon's novel and explored every twist and turn of its ingenious story. And by the time Dr. Pardon comes to his old friend Maigret's fiftieth birthday dinner, perhaps the Commissaire no longer feels quite so ready for the grass or that '...every time I pass an angler on the quays, I see myself in five years' time.' (Rosemary Hill)

"An overpowering experience, I've never been more moved by a piece of television." (Peter Black, Daily Mail)
"Much better than a mere tribute. It evokes an enormous nostalgia." (The Observer)
"What was so moving was the very 'ordinariness' of this girl, called on to become 'a great artist' then called on for something more: to die on the very threshold of her maturity." (The Guardian)
