Robert Fuest debuts in the director's chair
19 April 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"My Wildest Dream" suffers from the same problem that the early Tara King entries shared, a serviceable story but totally lacking in humor, which marked the debut of designer Robert Fuest in the director's chair. Peter Vaughan (1971's "Straw Dogs") plays Dr. Jaeger, a psychiatrist who encourages certain patients to act out their homicidal fantasies against their enemies, then sends them out to finish the job. The doctor's nurse (Susan Travers) continually phones Steed so that each murder takes place with at least one witness nearby, but eventually, they decide that Lord Teddy Chilcott (Edward Fox), a rival for Tara's affections, is the perfect choice to eliminate Steed. Tara again wears multiple wigs, including (for the second and last time) the long haired brunette one that recalls Emma Peel, but her fights have greatly improved and are well staged. Fuest shows a fine visual sense, working wonders with the lackluster script, the last of 19 from the prolific pen of Philip Levene, author of "The Cybernauts" (and its sequel), "The Hidden Tiger," "Never, Never Say Die," "Death's Door," "You Have Just Been Murdered," and "Who's Who???" Making his fifth and final appearance on the series is Philip Madoc, veteran of "The Decapod," "Six Hands Across a Table," "Death of a Batman," and "The Correct Way to Kill," whose mesmerized assassin, Slater, tries to take two lives, with Murray Hayne ("Tunnel of Fear") playing the first subject, Paul Gibbons. Robert Fuest went on to helm "Game," "They Keep Killing Steed," "The Rotters," "Take Me to Your Leader," "Pandora," and "Take-Over."
