A burglar is found dead of the home of Professor Busby, though nothing appears to have been stolen. Government official Bellcourt tells Regan and Carter that Busby was working on pills to relieve heart disease and that the burglary was no doubt master-minded by Danilov, the opponent of a head of state friendly to Britain who would benefit from the pills. Busby goes on the run, entrusting his supply of pills to his girl-friend Wendy, who works with comedy duo, Morecambe and Wise. They in fact end up with the pills and are pursued by villains and Sweeney alike, ending in a very fishy climax. Written by

The two "Sweeney" leads had enjoyed working with the comedians on their BBC show, and both parties were keen to rekindle their working relationship. See more
