    neat little directorial flourish in the same scene, with Coop hanging upside down and finally spotting Audrey 's letter. That kind of touch is why you bring in the director of Gleaming The Cube, isn 't it? Okay, that was a cheap shot at director Graeme Clifford who, prior to this episode (and Gleaming The Cube) directed the well-received Frances Farmer biopic Frances and provided the tricky editing for Robert Altman 's Images and Nicholas Roeg 's The Man Who Fell To
