Inspector West arrives in Jersey in pursuit of escaped prisoner Keith Prescott, who, a decade earlier, hacked into police computers and stole two million pounds. The presence of Keith's ex-wife Catherine and the landing of a mysterious plane suggest he is on the island and seeking plastic surgery from a doctor Lister. West arrests a man who answers Prescott's description but Bergerac comes to work out that more than one person could be on the island requesting Dr. Lister's services.Written by

Keith Prescott, what a wag. He once hacked into the police central computer and stole two million pounds by paying wages to fictitious policemen.
Prescott has been on the run for a decade, he managed to escape from custody and Inspector West has been doggedly pursuing him for all these years.
Now there is a lead that Keith Prescott is in Jersey. His ex-wife Catherine is on the island and there is a suspicion that Prescott needs to see the plastic surgeon who operated on him some years ago.
Bergerac pursues Catherine and loses her but Charlie Hungerford manages to take her out for lunch during a cricket match. There is another mysterious person on the island, arrived on a private plane and he seems to be criss crossing all the various interested parties. Bergerac thinks he might be able to uncover his identity.
Ronald Hines makes more of an impression here as Inspector West with the thankless task of catching someone who is regarded as a folk hero with the general public. There is a twist with the Frenchman who everyone thinks might be Prescott after plastic surgery. Although it is rather hard to believe that Prescott would had so radically changed when in Jersey originally for the plastic surgery or that he needed a 10 yearly tune up.
