Tara King works solo
22 April 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"All Done with Mirrors" was Linda Thorson's 12th episode, but the first in which she sported her own hair, also her first solo adventure. While Steed is under house arrest, Tara investigates an installation on the coast where secrets are being leaked to traitors. Following a series of mysterious deaths, she winds up at a nearby lighthouse with an unusual telescopic device. Each victim is dispatched by an assailant who isn't there, and there are a multitude of villains for Tara to vanquish, all expertly filmed on grand locations by director Ray Austin, whose only other credited episode is the vastly inferior "Have Guns-Will Haggle." The huge cast of series veterans is led by Edwin Richfield ("Girl on the Trapeze," "The Removal Men," "The White Elephant," "Too Many Christmas Trees," and "Dead Man's Treasure"), Peter Copley ("The White Dwarf"), Michael Trubshawe ("Dial a Deadly Number"), Joanna Jones ("The Correct Way to Kill"), Nora Nicholson ("Build a Better Mousetrap"), Anthony Dutton ("Return of the Cybernauts"), Graham Ashley ("Propellant 23"), Michael Nightingale ("A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station"), David Grey ("Girl on the Trapeze"), Tenniel Evans ("Please Don't Feed the Animals," "The Big Thinker," and "The Golden Fleece"), Peter Thomas ("Small Game for Big Hunters" and "Death's Door"), and Peter J. Elliott ("A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station," "Dead Man's Treasure," "You Have Just Been Murdered," and "Have Guns-Will Haggle"). Linda Thorson looks terrific, and her numerous fight scenes are superbly choreographed by former stunt arranger Austin.
