Comment on The Sentimental Agent TV series
9 April 2014 | by ewingmshSee all my reviews

Contributor claudg1950 is correct in drawing attention to the very odd way in which the hero, Carlos Varela, played by Carlos Thompson, is written out of the series a few episodes from the end, having 'gone away on business'. Had he been replaced by an actor equally as dashing it might have made sense, but instead actor John Turner is clumsily worked into the series as the boyfriend of Varela's secretary who wants to learn more about the import/export business. Not a bad actor, but compared to the very charismatic Carlos Varela he is colourless and anodyne. It would be fascinating to know what happened and who was responsible for it. There is an interview with Bert Kwouk on the DVD, who plays Varela's manservant in the series, but he sheds very little light on the matter. Mind you, one has to remember this series was made 52 years ago, so maybe no one can actually remember. Carlos Thompson left showbiz so perhaps he found the life disagreeable. Maybe we'll never know.
