Storyline

The Avengers "are needed" after reports that a motorist has repeatedly run over and supposedly killed the same person. Their investigations lead them to the country and the top secret Neoteric Research Unit, which is run by the appropriately-named Dr. Frank N. Stone, who has made a startlingly life-like robot of himself, so much so that Steed finds it hard to tell the two Stones apart. Written by don @ minifie-1

Christopher Lee on The Avengers!
2 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was quite an event for a fifteen year old boy in 1967! Hammer Fillm fans tuned in and we weren't disappointed, with Lee as a dapper scientist, Frank N. Stone, who just happens to be involved with creating robot duplicates that are indistinguishable from the real thing. This one has thrilling scenes of Lee lumbering about the countryside, stalking people who are using radio-controlled toys, drawn to the frequency and bringing a fistful of violence with him. Great fun, Emma is lovely and spunky as ever, Steed polished and urbane, and if it's not the best episode, nor even in the top ten, it's still essential viewing for any fan of horror cinema or this wonderful show from TV's golden age.
