I’ve spread the word elsewhere but passing on the word to all you Quiller fans. Although it’s been rumored to have been lost forever, a Michael Jayston fan has uploaded all thirteen episodes of the Quiller TV series to YouTube! The show has been slightly shrouded in mystery as it has been seen since it originally aired. Adam Hall did not like this version and disowned it, similar to what he did with the film.
This version does have a better lead in Jayston versus George Segal. He captures the coiled anger that is always present in Quiller. However, the show’s stories were overall quite weak. Quiller gets accidentally kidnapped! Quiller fights voodoo hypnosis! Quiller fights a rogue army!
I’ve watched several now and they … aren’t very good, but check it out and decide for yourself!
Come for the bad stories and stay for the bad clothes and the rocking theme song!
I don’t know how long they’ll be up there, but if you’ve ever been curious, now’s the time to check them out! Of all of them, the second episode is probably the one to watch. It’s an adaption of The Tango Briefing written by Hall himself.
Hattip to the Quiller email group which first alerted me to the series being online.
