Colonel Crittendon returns in this enjoyable show
19 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bumbling British Colonel Crittendon makes another appearance in this episode as the Colonel that causes problem wherever he decides to visit. And early in this show he is up to his old tricks.

What has happen is that Stalag 13 has a guest in the form of Doctor Vanetti that is a member of the atomic elite. He is at the prison camp so that he can work on the atomic bomb in the safety and quietness of the secure camp. When Hogan gets wind of this man in camp, he send to another Stalag for a trained assassin. However, Crittendon gets in the way and the assassin is captured so Crittendon will take the role of the trained assassin. Nothing good can come from this situation.

It turns out the Doctor is actually wanting to escape Germany but Crittendon believes it is a distraction and vows to kill the man. Hogan is going to have to think of a way to rid the camp of Crittendon and also help Doctor Vanetti escape to London.

Bernard Fox is always fantastic as the outlandish Crittendon and provides much needed comedy to the role. Another good story and excellent written and it all comes together for an entertaining show.
