Storyline

In 1945 Russian soldier Stanislav stole the secret of longevity from a Tibetian monk. He created an army of 252 sleepers that were stationed all over Europe. In 1965, one of them awoke by accident and went on a rampage in Berkshire. 12 years later, the same thing happens to a larger group in France. Only in death do the Russian soldiers show their advanced age. Steed, recognizing the symptoms, takes off for France with Gambit and Purdey. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Goofs

The onscreen caption before the attack at the French garage gives the date as "August 14th 1977" but the mocked-up front page of the Guardian on Steed's table - seen as he phones Emma to check that she had heard about the attack - gives the date as "Tuesday April 3". See more »

Quotes

Purdey: I found a way to a man's stomach.
John Steed: Oh?
Purdey: It's not through his heart.
