"What do you think, we are science fiction?"
30 June 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Part One concluded with a youthful Sir Norman Swickert emerging from the rejuvenation machine. However, Part Two begins with Sir Norman still old. Gritsky ( Harry Davis ) tells Madame de Sala that he has merely initiated the process.

Meanwhile, in the wine cellar, our intrepid heroes are about to be crushed in a press. Jordin stops the machine, and believing Illya dead, tries to question Solo. Illya emerges, and throws a money-clip bomb. Jordin escapes.

The rejuvenated Sir Norman plans to marry de Sala, and resume his political career, but the process is not permanent and he must receive regular treatment. He becomes angry with de Sala, feeling he is being manipulated.

Jordin leads a raid on the House of de Sala in Paris, killing Olga and snatching Gritsky. Now THRUSH has the process...

Part 2 boasts some action, but drags a bit. Perhaps the story would have worked better as a single episode. Maurice Evans gives a remarkable performance as the Churchillian 'Sir Norman'. Vera Miles' 'de Sala' is overshadowed by Bernard Fox's charming 'Jordin'. The rejuvenation machine contains the head of 'Robby The Robot' from the classic 'Forbidden Planet' ( 1956 ).

One question - when Gritsky uses the process on himself, why does his moustache not disappear? Did he have a 'tash' when he was eight years old?

Good to see Leo G.Carroll getting some of the action for once. Love the bit where he knocks out a THRUSH guard!
