Law & Order: Special Victims Unit


Series 11 - Episode 18 Bedtime



Brace yourselves for a tortuous plot and a parade of half-familiar faces, as Ann-Margret (who won an Emmy for her boozy turn), Morgan Fairchild (Falcon Crest) and Susan Anton (Baywatch) play the ex-girlfriends of a 1970s mattress mogul – one of whom may have killed his wife. Jaclyn Smith (Charlie’s Angels) is the cop who investigated the case. It’s all a bit of a camp in-joke, but worth seeing.


Investigative journalist Jane Whitmore is found dead in her bed with an X carved into her cheek and her throat slashed. Inquiries lead the team to drug rehab centre worker Ned Bogden, who has been accused of eliciting sexual favours from his patients, and Cragen links him to unsolved murders from the 1970s committed by the so-called Bedtime Butcher. Guest starring Jaclyn Smith, Ann-Margret and William Atherton.
