Quotes

John Steed: Now the inventor's royalties alone could amount to, wow, a million pounds!
Mrs. Renter: But I already have a million.
John Steed: I'm sure another one wouldn't be in the way, huh?
Mrs. Renter: Well, I'm not so sure. What with death duties, being rich hardly seems worthwhile.

Lee Patterson and Howard Goorney
25 January 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Undertakers" was more successful as the blueprint for a Mrs. Peel episode, since its poorly done filmed inserts bring down a storyline that held up beautifully until the end. The eccentric Howard Goorney, back from "Girl on the Trapeze," heads up The Undertakers, while Canadian actor Lee Patterson, star of the recently cancelled American TV series SURFSIDE 6, makes one of his last appearances on British television, playing Lomax, the main villain at a rest home where only millionaires are welcome. Patrick Holt, previously seen in "Intercrime," is shot dead by The Undertakers, and the grieving widow (Jan Holden, "Dial a Deadly Number") immediately dallies with the crooked Lomax, only to have their carefully laid plans upset by the untimely arrival of her stepdaughter (Mandy Miller), wondering about the sudden disappearance of her father. The villains are both efficient and amusing, another sign of things to come.
