If producer Peter Rogers hadn't already just used it for one of the thrillers he and director Gerald Thomas made before they hit paydirt with the 'Carry Ons' (at least three actors who featured in the early 'Carry Ons' - Frank Forsyth, Cyril Chamberlain & Anthony Sagar - appear within the first ten minutes of this film), 'The Vicious Circle' would have been a more suitable title for this diverting little drama which resembles a less bleak version of 'On the Night of the Fire' and 'Very Bad Things', in which events spiral outwards in unforeseen ways like ripples rather than form a simple chain.

Although buses no longer have conductors, a remarkable amount of the film has proved remarkably unchanged, notably the arguments that still break out when someone hasn't paid their fare on a bus, and the amoral opportunism of tabloid journalists when they sniff a juicy story...
