Storyline

Philippa Vale approaches Jim after being threatened by a thug who claims she has a notebook listing the members of S.P.A.R.T.A, an ultra-right wing organization though Philippa denies all knowledge. She does, however, recall robbing industrialist Sir Clive Hamer of a diamond choker some months earlier and deduces that he is the group's leader. When she sets out to find out more from Sir Clive without telling Jim, she lands herself in hot water from which Jim has to save her, but fortunately they have a valuable ally in Hamer's wife.

Bergerac crossed with Romancing the Stone
7 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Philippa Vale aka The Ice Maiden finds her life under threat from a thug demanding the she return a book that she has supposed to have stolen when in fact she is innocent she turns to Jim Bergerac for help. Together they discover that the book she is supposed stolen concerns details of the dealings of a far right terror group and it's esteemed backer. The pair then head into the dragon's den to get back the book and expose it's leader for he is. S.P.A.T.A is one of the most action packed episodes of Bergerac made, this clear in the climax when Jim and Philippa make their escape from the bad guy's liar on buggy's avoiding gunfire and ending in a freeze frame gun battle. John Nettles and Liza Goddard bounce off each other very well and David Calder makes for a very hiss-able bad guy. As the title of this review suggests there is a Romancing the Stone vibe to this episode. Some may like this while others may not, I am of the former view.
