Boardroom intrigue... or is that bedroom?
"Six Hands Across a Table" finally presents Cathy Gale (essentially working solo yet again) in a more emotionally involved situation than we've seen before. Spending several days at the country estate of an old schoolmate, Cathy becomes somewhat close to the girl's father, Oliver Waldner (Guy Doleman), who is later said to be in love with Cathy. Unfortunately, Waldner is involved with a corporate takeover of a rival shipbuilding firm that has proposed doing business with the French. Patriotism takes a back seat when the firm's owner is killed in a suspicious car crash, particularly since he was revealed to be an excellent driver. While Steed casts aspersions on Cathy's newfound relationship, Brian Collier (Edward de Souza, "The Curious Case of the Countless Clues"), son of the late owner, is also being victimized by a series of near fatal 'accidents.' Philip Madoc, previously seen in "The Decapod," is his usual dependable self, carefully weighing his options on both sides, with solid contributions from other series veterans like Campbell Singer ("Who's Who???"), John Wentworth ("The Master Minds"), Frank Sieman ("Fog"), and Ilona Rodgers ("The Bird Who Knew Too Much").
