Quotes

Emma Peel: [referring to 'A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man] A man doesn't have to be handsome to be attractive. There's a sort of ugliness for it's own sake. And if you look closely, you'll find a sense of humour. And the eyes are kind.
John Steed: It hasn't got any eyes.

Return of the Cybernauts
24 January 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

With a cast that includes Fulton Mackay, Frederick Jaeger, Peter Cushing. I thought Aimi MacDonald stole the episode as the bubble headed secretary Rosie.

Cushing plays suave and sophisticated Paul Beresford, the brother of the mad scientist who invented the cybernauts.

Beresford wants revenge for the death of his brother. He has been playing a cat and mouse game with Steed and Mrs Peel that includes some flirting with Emma that she appreciates.

At the same time his cybernaut has been abducting the premier scientists in their fields. They are forced to develop weapons to make Steed and Mrs Peel suffer.

Cushing enjoys playing a suave madman, he is almost like the archetypal 1960s Bond villain.

The cybernaut with his silver face was frightening but it is certainly silly that he would somehow be able to walk through London with a man over his shoulder and remain undetected.

The cybernaut does lend the series an element of a futuristic science fiction concept to add to the fantasy action.
