Peter Davison stars as bespectacled, aristocratic private detective Albert Campion in this two-part adaptation of Margery Allingham's novel Look to the Lady. Set in Suffolk, England during the 1930s, the story concerns the Gyrth Chalice, a 1000-year-old artifact stolen from a once-prominent family now on its uppers. In his efforts to recover the chalice and restore the Gyrth family's prestige, Campion and his assistant Lugg (Brian Glover) enlist the aid of a shabby drifter named Val (Robin Lermette). The key to the story is "the Daisy"--which also happens to be the name of one of the principal characters. In America, "Look to the Lady" was telecast November 23 and 30, 1989, as part of the PBS anthology Mystery!
