Steed joins the society and discovers that, whilst aliens may seem to be responsible for the murders, the real culprit is a vengeful optician. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

Crawford: Does anyone really know what's up there? On Venus, or Mars, or even the moon? Discoveries always begin as a guessing game. We may be right, we may be wrong. If you don't explore, you don't find out. And we shall, some day. Our funds are growing fast.
Emma Peel: While your membership dwindles.

From Venus with Love
15 August 2020 | by guswhovianSee all my reviews

Steed and Mrs Peel investigate when members of the British Venusian society start to die.

Season five gets off to a most enjoyable start with From Venus with Love. It's now in color, and it's fun seeing Diana Rigg's wardrobe in color. If possible, she looks even lovelier in color than in black-and-white.

The plot is rather silly (aren't they always?), but there's a terrific guest cast: Barbara Shelley, Derek Newark and Philip Locke. Jon Pertwee appears briefly as a Brigadier! Jeremy Lloyd, who would later help create Are Young Being Served?, has a brief bit as a chimney-cleaning aristocrat.
