Dancing with danger
3 March 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Quick-Quick Slow Death" is definitely one episode where the plot is secondary, and was the third not to be shown in the US. A plot about infiltration through a dancing school could only work in this format, led by beautiful Eunice Gayson, best known as Sylvia Trench, the first girl bedded by James Bond in both "Dr. No" and "From Russia with Love." Graham Armitage returned for "The Correct Way to Kill," David Kernan returned for "Never, Never Say Die," and James Belchamber returned for "Get-A-Way!" (Charles Hodgson had already appeared in "Double Danger"). Making his only appearance on the show is veteran screen villain Maurice Kaufmann, then husband of Honor Blackman ('Cathy Gale' herself), while Carole Gray, a frequent presence in horrors like "Devils of Darkness," "Curse of the Fly," "The Brides of Fu Manchu," and "Island of Terror," would only total six other credits in her brief but memorable career.
