The Invisible Man - Man in Power – 1958 This episode is set in a small mid east country. The General in charge of the army, Andre Morell, murders the King and blames it on some rebels. He then sends an aircraft to England for the heir to the throne, Gary Raymond, to return.

Raymond is at Oxford attending a lecture being given by Dr. Peter Brady. Brady (The Invisible Man) offers to tag along with his student, Raymond.

The two catch the plane back to the mid-east. Morell greets Raymond and tells him there are several important papers he must sign. Morell wants to break the treaty the country has with the west. Money is of course the underlying reason for this. Morell wants some, and breaking the treaty will get it for him.

Raymond refuses to sign which of course upsets Morell no end. Raymond dismisses him and begins to get ready to accept the crown the next day. Morell decides a different tact is needed and kidnaps Raymond's sister, Nadja Regin.

The next day, just before Raymond is to accept the throne, Morell tells Raymond to refuse the crown, or he will kill Regin. Dr. Brady, who has remained invisible while all this is happening, goes to work. He rescues Regin just in time for Raymond to receive the crown.

Morell and his henchmen are then rounded up and sent for the chop.

Brady is played by Johnny Scripps when clothed, while the voice is supplied by Tim Turner.

Some, like myself, will remember Raymond from his days on RAT PATROL.

This was the first episode I've caught and I found it quite watch-able.
