Did You Know?

Goofs

Craig is in a room which is suddenly filled with gas, which proceeds to knock him out. Later, he dives off a dock and holds his breath underwater, longer than the average person would be able to. Why didn't he do this in the room with the gas? He would have instinctively known to try to hold his breath, so wouldn't it have worked the same as it did underwater? See more »

Peter Wyngarde is great
1 September 2015 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

Episode 2 of The Champions is another winner. In The Invisible Man, The Champions investigate $30 million in stolen gold and why a seemingly normal banker would just hand it over. The mini-transmitter playing the role of the titular invisible man is an interesting idea. And it's carried out very well also. Peter Wyngarde, the voice of the invisible man and the evil genius behind the gold theft, is the highlight of the episode. He steals every scene. What a presence! One thing I really enjoyed about The Invisible Man was the atmosphere. There's a real sense of menace about the whole thing as you watch the upstanding banker struggle with what's going on in his head. It reminded quite a bit of an episode from The Avengers - not that I remember one with a similar plot device, but the feel was very Avengers-like.

One complaint I have about The Champions so far is with the make-up. There are scenes where Stuart Damon looks positively plastic. And it takes real talent to make the beautiful Alexandra Bastedo look so bad - which is exactly the case because of a poor make-up job.
