A handful of death
12 January 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Golden Eggs" is a potentially gripping story that doesn't quite make it, but still winds up as one of the second season's better episodes. Peter Arne (previously seen in "Warlock") once again portrays the villain, Julius Redfern, a low key, self absorbed madman who hires a petty thief (Gordon Whiting, "The Cybernauts") to steal a pair of gold-plated eggs containing a deadly infectious virus, without telling him how dangerous they are. The thief becomes ill, and his wife (Irene Bradshaw, "One for the Mortuary" and "Murdersville") has no idea where he has hidden the eggs, so Cathy Gale, basically working solo, becomes the one to find them and foil Redfern's plot to benefit from germ warfare. Donald Eccles plays Dr. Ashe, the creator of the virus, and Pauline Delany ("The 50,000 Breakfast") plays his assistant, secretly working for Redfern, until Cathy convinces her to turn against him in a climax worth waiting for.
