The Correct Way to Kill
29 August 2020 | by guswhovianSee all my reviews

After two Russian agents are killed, Steed declares a truce and investigates with Mrs Peel and two other Russian agents.

A remake of the Cathy Gale episode The Charmers, The Correct Way to Kill is the worst episode of the series in a while. Diana Rigg isn't in it a lot, and Anna Quayle was rather annoying. The script is quite funny in places, and Michael Gough was good as the Russia spymaster. It was funny seeing low-class Charlie Hungerford from Bergerac playing someone who runs a school teaching people how to become gentlemen!
