Trivia

As Steed and Mrs. Peel await the arrival of the Prime Minister in the last scene, she says "No, he's the one in the raincoat." This is a reference to the then Prime Minister, Harold Wilson, who was often photographed wearing a raincoat. See more »

Goofs

The train is announced as arriving at King's Cross yet the locomotive hauling it is a class 82 (or 83 or 84). Those locos ran on the West Coast main line out of Euston, drawing power from overhead cables. It could not have gone to King's Cross as it would have had no power source. See more »

Quotes

Ticket Collector: Salt's camera had a film in it.
Bride: Very practical place to keep a film, I'd say.

One thing very unusual...
12 March 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I won't add much to what have already written the other viewers. Except that the prologue is very surprising; see for yourself. In this short segment, the villain is killed and the good man gets away. Or audiences may wonder WHO the real villain is after all? No one seems to have noticed this. very interesting indeed.
