Did You Know?


Catherine Gale: [crosses arms] Did you get all the stuff I did sent you?
John Steed: I did. Thank you.
Catherine Gale: I was worried about Terry. He had a tattoo a couple days before he joined the circus, so he's probably a phony. Tattoos are like a passport around here.
John Steed: How come you know so much about tattoos?
Catherine Gale: I took it at school instead of needlework.

Send in the clowns
14 January 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Conspiracy of Silence" is the weakest second season episode, much inferior to "Girl on the Trapeze," with the Mafia targeting to assassinate Steed through a small time circus. Once again, he takes a back seat to Cathy Gale, but neither has much to work with here (the two do have one fiery exchange to enliven the boredom). For the first time since "Mr Teddy Bear," Cathy is led to believe that Steed has been killed, but just won't give him any satisfaction. Sandra Dorne had decorative roles in genre fare like "Invisible Creature" (1960) and "Devil Doll" (1963), while Robert Rietty was used mostly for voice-over work in several James Bond features. Alec Mango later appeared in "Two's a Crowd," and Artro Morris later did "How to Succeed .... at Murder." Ian Wilson has a nice cameo as a tattoo artist, and Steed's dog Sheba makes her fourth of five appearances (the last would be in "The Gilded Cage").
