Quite a bargain
17 February 2009 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

One of the great things about the avengers is the mixed bag of episodes they are. Although none of them really show much of the outside world, many take place in the countryside of Great Britain. Others, like this on are set in London and have almost only one set piece. Here it is a department store in which one of Steed and Mrs. Peel's colleagues got killed. The restricted area is perfect for John and Emma to sneak around and have fun. As so often, again the combination of old tradition and modern technology, eccentric characters and clever criminals are hidden between basement and rooftop of this building. Certainly, there is enough innuendo between John and Emma going on to keep the sexual tension up as usual.
