Scotland Yard investigates the connection between a man who suffers from amnesia, and a woman found dying on her living room floor
This short crime film was part of the Scotland Yard series, a series of 39 episodes produced by Anglo-Amalgamated between 1953 and 1961. They are short films, largely half-hour in length, that were originally made to support the main feature in a cinema double-bill. Each film focused on a true crime case, with only the names changed, and featured an introduction by the crime writer Edgar Lustgarten. Fatal Journey was No.7 in the series. These films should not be confused with the BBC television series of the same name broadcast in 1960 which are unrelated. Fatal Journey features some shots of London Bridge station with a train arriving in the low-level terminus platforms behind BR Standard 4MT 2-6-4T No.80010, a shot that is repeated towards the end of the film. In addition to this, there is a shot of the frontage to an as yet unidentified station, and a scene with Julian Somers leaving a suitcase at another unknown station on the Southern Region.
