Did You Know?


A fun connection. Jane Merrow played Susan Rushton in The Avengers' "Mission . . . Highly Improbable" in 1967. In 1970 she played Lady Cora Weston in Mission: Impossible's "Lover's Knot". She did the spoof/homage/rip-off/compliment show first. See more »


Early in the episode, as Paris and Lady Weston go horseback riding, the trees have red and orange leaves and she remarks that autumn is her favorite season. When she and Jim Phelps go to the casino a day or so later, however, the date on the check he writes is "Feb. 14, 1970," which is almost the end of winter in Britain. See more »

A lovely lady spy steals Paris's heart, but he soldiers on.
23 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the pared down crew (no Peter Lupus, no girl-of-the-week), the acting in this one is a cut above the average for both the regulars and the guests, especially lovely Jane Merrow. Peter Graves as Jim as a dashing military man turned obsessed and distraught gambler fills his part in the plot, and has a little fun, as well. Leonard Nimoy, playing determinedly against type, goes all dreamy-eyed for a villainous lady, while the dual personalities of the spy "K" keeps his identity secret for quite some time. And instead of exiting the scene in their trusty old van, our heroes head for Scotland Yard in the villain's own Rolls Royce. Now that's class!
