Storyline

Whilst in Monte Carlo the Saint saves the life of Fallouda, the ex-king of Fedyra. Fallouda tells him he aims to return to power by raising money by selling the jewellery of his wife, Queen Adana. The Saint and Adana set out to collect the jewels, the journey being initially icy as the queen is the daughter of a London bus driver and feels the Saint should give her more respect. Having warded off one attack the couple obtain the jewels but on the way back to meet Fallouda their car breaks down. They are offered a lift by a sweet old lady who invites them in for tea - tea which she has drugged because she too is after the queen's jewels. Will the SAint be able to deliver the queen's ransom?

A Candidate for best Saint episode
18 December 2006 | by (East Coast, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This episode will have you watching it over & over again on DVD. Tautly directed by Roy Baker("A Night to Remember" about the Titanic) this episode could've easily been turned into a feature film. Beautiful Dawn Addams is the female guest star this time as Queen Adana. She & Simon(Roger Moore) are on the run escorting valuable jewels back to her husband, a deposed king. She & Simon have a visual & verbal dual of wits as they fly, rail & steal cars around France all while trying to elude Arab despots. They make a comically interesting pair while repeatedly avoiding attempts on their lives. My absolute favorite line in the episode and perhaps in all television, comes from veteran actress Nora Nickelson who masquerades as a sweet old lady while actually being part of the Arab gang. She beautifully upstages Moore & Addams with her old lady sweetness. After nearly poisoning Simon & the Queen she is caught and Addams playfully asks Nora if she does crime often and Nora responds by saying: "My talent for intrigue almost exactly matches my contempt for politicians." Priceless bit of dialogue. All of the Saint episodes are decent, the ones that have been put on discs. One might ask why didn't A&E market the whole library from 1962-69 going in chronological order year by year. Makes sense to me. But this particular episode, Queen's Ransom, is a gem. You can't go wrong watching it.
