Storyline

Working undercover as supposed hitmen out to fake the assassination of a government official, Bodie and Doyle's new partner turns out to be Jimmy Keller, who once saved Bodie's life when they were in the S.A.S. However, Bodie is concerned that Keller is in too deep with the gang of Italian terrorists whom they are shadowing. Is Keller just a maverick mercenary out to make money from both sides or a genuine danger to CI5? Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The Sud Aviation Alloutte 2 helicopter was G-FILM, provided by Alan Mann Helicopters, Fairoaks Aerodrome, Surrey, who often supplied helicopters for The Professionals. Sadly G-FILM was destroyed not long after. See more »

Goofs

When Bodie first flies over the farmhouse in a helicopter, there are tyre tracks on the lawn. However when Benedek then escapes by car, the lawn has no tyre tracks: we see him create them when he reverses across the grass as he tries to outrun the helicopter. Clearly the two shots were filmed in the opposite order to the way they have been edited. See more »

Great all action episode
24 August 2017 | by (eng) – See all my reviews

A superb episode of the great TV show that thrilled us all in the 70s. Another one where Bodie shows his terrific action skills, as a marksman from a helicopter, in a pistol shooting fight in a warehouse and in unarmed combat, of which he was possible the best exponent ever, certainly on British TV. In an episode involving an ex colleague from their time in the SAS it helped that Collins who played Bodie was ex SAS himself. Fantastic hard hitting combat scenes that knock spots off most movie fight scenes today.
