Grumpy software designer Jarvis McLeod receives death threats through his computer and his wife Monica's dog is poisoned. Then the speaker deputising for him at a conference is blown up. McLeod is not popular but the chief suspect seems to be John Logan, the embittered ex-partner in his business - though he has an alibi. Bergerac wonders if McLeod is actually behind the so-called death threats. Certainly the culprit seems to be somebody close to home.

Writer Robert Holmes probably included this line as an oblique reference to his own surname. See more
