Trivia

Loveless tells henchmen to dispose of West and Gordon "five miles past the Golden Gate". The "Golden Gate" is the strait that connects the San Francisco Bay to the Pacific Ocean and is spanned by the Golden Gate Bridge, which was opened in 1937. See more »

Goofs

When West goes to visit Crane he is playing with an electric toy train set. The earliest electric trains, when not powered by batteries, were most often run on three-rail tracks. Two-rail tracks did not come into use until the early years of the 20th century. In 1874, model trains were usually powered by clockwork springs. Unlike the various mad scientists and their anachronistic inventions that became the trademark of The Wild Wild West, Crane is merely one of the victims of Dr. Loveless. See more »

Wild, Wild Christmas
13 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A Dr. Loveless episode...set at Christmas...directed by Mark ("On Golden Pond" & "The Cowboys") Rydell? Sure sounds like it couldn't miss. Unfortunately, all these promising elements were not quite in proper alignment when it came time to make "The Night Of The Whirring Death". Granting the up-until-then mute Voltaire a voice was pointless, and only served to remove a layer of mystery from this character's intimidating presence. The opening sequence in which a pile of money is stolen from a Scrooge-like misanthrope takes way too long to set up, too.

Still, "...Whirring Death" does succeed in the action department with a well-staged fight between West and a group of bodyguards and the foiling of an assassination plot is quite exciting, too. Plus, you gotta' love the little wind-up time bombs.

Shoulda' been outstanding, but this one does at least have a few saving graces.
