Storyline

Leaving a Chinese restaurant Steed picks up the wrong coat and finds a cheque to the value of £5,000 drawn to a bank in Hong Kong. It becomes evident that the restaurant is the front for an international gold smuggling operation, run by big wig Mr. Lo. However, the Avengers are surprised to encounter Major Ruse, a modern Robin Hood, and his band of ex-servicemen who are exploiting the racket for a worthy cause. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Catherine Gale: You can't just tell me in plain, straight forward language that you're after a gold smuggler. We have to go through this ridiculous rigmarole of candlelight and wine and old Chinese proverbs. Well, here's another old Chinese proverb: he who does not tell truth, gets cushion in eye!
[throws a cushion at Steed]

Warren Mitchell makes his first appearance
20 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

"The Golden Fleece" is a weak, straightforward crime entry, with the elderly Asian villain (Robert Lee) smuggling gold from Britain to Hong Kong, where it fetches a higher price on the black market, aided by three military officers working on behalf of impoverished army veterans. Steed's dog Junia makes its third and last appearance, but the first to go uncredited. As was usually the case with the lesser episodes, the fiery exchanges between Steed and Cathy make up for the dull passages. Warren Mitchell makes his series debut, going on to do "The Charmers," "Two's a Crowd," and "The See-Through Man." Tenniel Evans previously did "The Big Thinker," Lisa Peake did "Kill the King," Michael Hawkins did "The Deadly Air" and "Take Me to Your Leader," and Barry Linehan did "Get-A-Way!"
