Ex magician Bruno Valenta (Terry Duggan) runs a remote guesthouse with his family: wife Laura (Hilary Crane), daughter Madeleine (Jane Page) and son, Mark (David Nunn).
He becomes concerned following the arrival of three guests – Mr Bill Smith (Arthur White) and his grown-up son and daughter, Derry (Brian Capron) and Ann (Frances Tomelty) – who appear to be hiding something. They are, in fact, robbers who are looking for somewhere to hide out with the £100,000 they stole from a bank.
Bruno discovers the trio have a gun and realises his family are in real danger when son Mark finds the disguises they used in the robbery.
The robbers attempt to isolate their hosts from any outside contact but things start to unravel when PC Brockhurst (Lloyd McGuire) arrives at the house and Madeleine suddenly complains of a bad toothache.
The Sunday afternoon series was from ATV and made its debut on 4 January 1976.
