Storyline

Life is never dull where Lord Brett Sinclair and Danny Wilde are concerned. But who would expect dire danger, hilarious though it may be, to face them in one of Brett's baronial homes? Even more unexpectedly, murder and black magic take place when Danny decides to own his own little piece of England and buys a tumble down old cottage. The old mansion, Greensleeves, has been in the Sinclair family for generations, but has been unoccupied for a long time except for an aged butler named Moorehead. It is only by chance that Brett discovers that it has been restored without his permission. He and Danny decide to investigate and, entering through a secret tunnel, find a letter addressed to a theatrical agent asking him to an actor who resembles Brett. Brett promptly poses as the actor and gets the job of impersonating himself. Danny and Brett have a lot to overcome before Danny can enjoy his little piece of England! Written by Leigh Thomas

Two TV shows glued together
4 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The summary says it all. This 'film' is actually two completely unconnected episodes of the TV series The Persuaders stuck together to make a feature-length film.

There is little or no attempt to make a coherent storyline. A short scene at the beginning shows the Judge, a regular character in The Persuaders, blackmailing Brett (Roger Moore) and Danny (Tony Curtis) into doing some investigating for him. However, the opening story appears to have no conceivable connection with this opening scene. Indeed if the Judge had a suspicion of the plot that was underway, then he would have been much better advised simply calling the police immediately.

The Persuaders was fun but quickly becomes tiresome. Watching the antics twice over is about half the fun of watching a single episode.
