Follow the leader
11 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

"Take Me to Your Leader" is another Robert Fuest feast for the eyes, from an intriguing script by Terry Nation. Steed and Tara trail an impregnable briefcase from one courier to the next, and hope to catch the big cheese at the conclusion of its journey, with Mother the prime suspect. The veteran cast includes Patrick Barr, John Ronane ("Murdersville"), Michael Robbins ("Square Root of Evil," "Dragonsfield," "Mr Teddy Bear"), Penelope Keith ("The Murder Market" and "Something Nasty in the Nursery"), Michael Hawkins ("The Deadly Air" and "The Golden Fleece"), and Raymond Adamson ("The Decapod" and "The Grandeur That Was Rome").
