This is one for pop fans. Eartha Kitt's singing is the best thing about this episode. The house party with the table - top dancing granny is also quite fun.

The next best thing is the guest appearance by Kate O'Mara. The plot itself is feeble and developed unusually slowly, so that the ending appears suddenly tacked-on with no real preparation.
