Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Though he is most fondly remembered by American moviegoers for his supporting-stooge work in the films of director Richard Lester, plump comic actor Roy Kinnear was even more popular in his native Britain by virtue of his many television appearances. Among Kinnear's regular-series assignments was the spoofish sitcom A Slight Case Of.... In this one, the actor was cast as seedy, disreputable private eye H.A. Wormsley, who solved the case at hand in each episode in spite of his ineptitude. The six half-hour installments of A Slight Case Of... were telecast by BBC2 from September 8 to October 10, 1965.
