A most unhealthy health farm
10 May 2010 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Another adventure for the flamboyant creator of private eye 'Mark Caine'.

In Germany, Jason's new secretary Myra Borgen ( Jennifer Hilary ) berates him for being physically out of shape. It is true. Jason likes his food a bit too much for his own good. He enrols at the Klinic Wilstein health farm. In a possible nod to the Bond movie 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service' ( 1969 ), the place is packed full of beautiful girls. As soon as he begins the diet, Jason regrets it. Given prunes to eat, he goes hungry and starts hallucinating. Prowling around the clinic's corridors, he witnesses a cold blooded murder. But is it real?

This Tony Williamson-scripted episode is slightly reminiscent of an 'Avengers' caper of his entitled 'Wish You Were Here'. In that a country hotel was imprisoning wealthy guests so that greedy relatives could plunder their wealth. Here a health farm is driving the rich insane with the means of sonics. Behind the scheme is Dr.Litz ( John Le Mesurier of 'Dad's Army' ) with Yootha Joyce as an 'Irma Bunt'-style matron. One has to laugh now as the girls' eyes pop out when King strides into the clinic. "What a man!", one of them ( played by Natasha Pyne, of 'Father Dear Father' fame ) coos. Felix Aylmer ( the 'Old Man' from 'The Champions' episode 'The Beginning' ) is 'Dr.Wilstein'. Bridget Armstrong ( fresh from 'The Goodies' edition 'Lost Tribe Of The Orinoco' ) looks sexy as a nurse. Also from 'The Goodies' ( Season 1's 'Army Games' to be precise ) is George Benson as a gym instructor.

The climax has King fighting the villains in a gym using items of exercising equipment as weapons.
