Steed has been having bad dreams involving Christmas trees and a man dressed as Santa Claus. At a party given by publisher and Dickens fan Brandon Storey, two telepathic spies attempt to read Steed's mind and make sense of the dream. However, the dream is echoed exactly by the events of the party, enabling Steed to spot the villains in advance and identify the dangerous Santa. Written by

When Emma arrives at Steed's apartment, she reads some of the Christmas cards he's received. She notes that one is from Fort Knox, opens it and reads, "Best wishes for the future - Cathy." Steed responds, "Mrs. Gale! And how nice of her to remember me. What can she be doing in Fort Knox?" This is a reference to Honor Blackman
, who quit her part as Cathy Gale in this series to appear as Pussy Galore in Goldfinger
(1964) - which involved a scheme to make the gold held at Fort Knox, Kentucky radioactive and valueless. See more
