kick boxing nurses and a fiendish maze
6 June 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Perhaps an average episode of 'The New Avengers', this is the one where government ministers die unexpectedly of natural causes after visiting a health farm where ladies in lycra give them special care - a muddled story, really, concerning a maze, some brainwashing, and some ladies who are keen fighters when they're cornered.

Purdey, pretty as ever, doesn't really challenge Emma Peel and her predecessors as a special agent, but with Steed and Gambit around surely someone could have worked out the solution a bit quicker than they did - here the viewers are in on it early on and so there's a certain frustration in watching our trio of heroes dot the i's and find the traitor in their midst.

Look out for a very young Lindsay Duncan amongst the supporting cast, and Terence Alexander as someone suspected of an inside job. But 'Angels of Death' is rather predictable and as such is only really a time-filler, nothing special.
