Storyline

The Ministry of Missile Deployment is suffering from a security leak when its head Sir Rodney Kellogg has fallen for plain, middle-aged cleaner Martha Roberts and told her all his secrets. Needless to say Martha is not what she seems and the avengers must discover true identity and how she has duped Sir Rodney and other misogynist ministers into betrayal. Written by don @ minifie-1

We love Veronica Strong!
10 May 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Love All" is one of the last classics, third of 5 episodes scripted by veteran actor Jeremy Burnham and second directed by Peter Sykes ("Noon Doomsday"). Veronica Strong excels as Martha Roberts, a frumpy, chain smoking charwoman working at the Ministry, extracting top secret information from woman hating civil servants who inexplicably fall in love with her. Tara is the only one to notice the symptoms (and perfume), but also the one that unknowingly succumbs herself, led to attempt a despondent suicide. The climax reveals all, and Steed is the lucky beneficiary! The plot is certainly nothing new, but the execution makes all the difference, with a distinctive music score quite unlike any other done for the series. The final appearance for veterans Terence Alexander ("The Town of No Return" and "The Correct Way to Kill"), Brian Oulton ("The Charmers"), Frank Gatliff ("One for the Mortuary," "The Sell-Out," "A Chorus of Frogs"), and Norman Pitt ("A Change of Bait").
