Storyline

Five years after a mine disaster, Mrs. Peel and Steed are called upon to investigate the spooky goings-on at the local inn. The ghost of the 16th Duke of Benedict, who was reputedly lost in the mine disaster, has been seen wandering the area and Emma joins SMOG and FOG in a ghost hunt. The Duke's ghost supposedly takes Emma with him to his final resting place in the collapsed mine, but Steed descends into the shaft to rescue her. He finds a secret underground city that is being used to stage an invasion of England; the mine disaster was just a cover-up for the plan. Steed rescues Emma and country by cutting off access to the topside elevator. Written by Marta Dawes

Julian Glover in his second appearance
27 March 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Living Dead" begins as an investigation into the existence of ghosts, then changes course as the corpses pile up. Rupert Staplow (Edward Underdown, "The Murder Market") appears in the local cemetery, five years after supposedly dying in a mine cave-in, bringing on the attentions of both FOG (Friends of Ghosts) and SMOG (Scientific Measurement of Ghosts). SMOG's George Spencer (Vernon Dobtcheff, "Room Without a View" and "Thingumajig") is quickly found dead, while FOG's Mandy McKay (Pamela Ann Davy, "Mission to Montreal") insists that the ghosts have taken away Mrs. Peel. Making his second appearance on the show, Julian Glover's nasty Masgard takes shots at the unprotected Steed, and tries to bribe the local drunk into silence about the spectral happenings. Also present in the familiar cast are Howard Marion Crawford ("What the Butler Saw" and "Stay Tuned"), John Cater ("The Nutshell" and "Death at Bargain Prices"), Jack Watson ("Silent Dust"), and Alister Williamson, not seen since the first two episodes, "Hot Snow" and "Brought to Book." Previously seen in "Two's a Crowd," the busy Glover would return for "Split!" and "Pandora," but may perhaps be best known for his villainous turn in the 1981 James Bond thriller "For Your Eyes Only."
