Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Adapted for television by T.R. Bowen (of The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes fame), Just Desserts was based on a 1979 novel by Tim Heald. Billed as a "comedy thriller," the program starred David Horovitch as Heald's famous literary creation, diligent Board of Trade investigator Simon Bognor. On this occasion, Bognor was put on the trail of a cartel of dishonest restaurateurs, whose eating establishments were both disreputable and unhygienic. Designed as a sequel to the twice-weekly series Bognor (1981), the three half-hour installments of Just Desserts were seen courtesy of Thames Television in 1982.
