Trivia

It is worth mentioning Mrs Peel's costume in the joke section at the end of this episode. She wears a cut-off tracksuit with suspenders holding up her thigh-high leather boots. It is perhaps the most bizarre costume in the history of television. See more »

Goofs

Mrs. Peel parks her car in front of Professor Jordon's house and gets out to go and find him. The next view of the front of the house shows Mrs. Peel's car to be missing from the shot. See more »

Ron Moody and Anthony Valentine
16 March 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Bird Who Knew Too Much" is probably a lesser entry, which is usually the case when the two stars are split up. In this one, Steed spends an inordinate amount of time with a model (Ilona Rodgers, "Six Hands Across a Table"), even posing with her for a photographer (Kenneth Cope, "The Curious Case of the Countless Clues"), while Mrs. Peel does more of the footwork, as avian agents feather their nests with aerial information translated for the mysterious Captain Crusoe, a remarkable talking parrot. Ron Moody's appearance is just as brief as his preceding episode, "Honey for the Prince," while Anthony Valentine made one further appearance in "Killer." Playing silent roles as murdered agents are John Lee ("The Forget-Me-Knot"), and an unbilled Frank Maher ("November Five," "Dressed to Kill," "The Little Wonders," "You Have Just Been Murdered").
