"Death A La Carte" is another lesser entry, something of a throwback to the previous season, with Steed disguised as a master chef, serving up a special menu for the visiting Emir Abdulla Akaba (Henry Soskin, "A Change of Bait"), ailing ambassador from an oil-rich nation, whose doctor (Paul Dawkins, "Death on the Slipway" and "Death's Door") diagnoses that the Emir could go at any time, but has many enemies out to hasten the process. Cathy works as hostess for the Emir, who is understandably pleased by her efficiency, while Steed is the middle man between the feisty Italian chef (David Nettheim) and the French pastry chef (Gordon Rollings), both of whom may be more involved than they should be. Playing Brigadier Mellor, trusted aide to the Emir, is Robert James, familiar from "Hot Snow," "Brought to Book," "Too Many Christmas Trees," and "Look - (stop me if you've heard this one) But There Were These Two Fellers..." Also on hand are Ken Parry, later seen in "Honey for the Prince," and Valentino Musetti, previously seen in "The Decapod."
