Although the series was made on colour videotape, only "Things That Go Bang in the Night" and "Red Admiral" still survive in that format (though the latter has a small amount of missing footage which has been plugged with b/w film footage); the remainder exist as monochrome film prints. See more »
Government has secret organisation to solve bizarre cases
Government has a secret organisation to solve bizarre cases. Sounds familiar? Well this is the premise of Spyder's Web. The Spyder Co. is in a small office in the middle of any town. Run by Lotte Dean and her two assistants Wallis and Clive. The web referred to in the title is the mysterious organisation run by the government, which has cells like Spyder , to solve cases outside the remit of MI5/Scotland Yard etc. This meant that Lotte and her team were often landed in tales of curious 'cold war' goings on, in which they would have to talk or fight for their lives. The series had some very interesting stories and a nice sense of humour, if there is any criticism, it is that more care and attention appeared to be paid on the location scenes, than the studio scenes,which can look wooden.
