The Avengers "are needed" after reports that a motorist has repeatedly run over and supposedly killed the same person. Their investigations lead them to the country and the top secret Neoteric Research Unit, which is run by the appropriately-named Dr. Frank N. Stone, who has made a startlingly life-like robot of himself, so much so that Steed finds it hard to tell the two Stones apart. Written by don @ minifie-1

Sir Christopher Lee and Patrick Macnee- boyhood pals together again
30 March 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Never, Never Say Die" features the series debut of Sir Christopher Lee, who would be back for a Tara King classic, "The Interrogators." Boyhood chums with Patrick Macnee, it's a real thrill to see the two friends oppose each other on screen, though not the equal of Lee and Peter Cushing. Cast as Professor Frank N. Stone (a nod to Lee's unforgettable Creature in Hammer's 1957 "The Curse of Frankenstein"), we first see him walking in front of a car driven by the understandably confused Whittle (Christopher Benjamin, "How to Murder" and "Split!"), who has the extreme misfortune of running into the same unstoppable pedestrian twice in a matter of hours, only for him to walk away each time. After a one sided battle with Stone, Steed later discovers him to be the leader of a top secret installation that bans transistor radios because a certain frequency wreaks havoc on their mission. Also appearing are Jeremy Young ("A Taste of Brimstone" and "The Forget-Me-Knot"), David Kernan ("Quick-Quick Slow Death"), John Junkin ("Dressed to Kill"), and Patricia English, a memorable guest performer in both "Mission to Montreal" and "The Secrets Broker."
