The avengers are called in when a 60-year old general is killed in a 'chicken run' motor-cycle accident and another officer, having fallen whilst trying to scale St Paul's cathedral, is murdered in hospital whilst under the care of Dr Long. They discover that they were part of a group of disgruntled military men, members of a secret society of the Black Rose, giving themselves code-names based on Greek gods. Bored with peace-time they engage in dangerous and illegal activities and Steed and Emma must identify their leader before they carry out their next caper, the theft of the Crown Jewels.

Did You Know?
When Lamble climbs onto the window ledge of his hospital room we are shown that it is meant to be many storeys high, with a grey and overcast vista far below. In the supposed reverse shot, we can see the shadow of a tree's leaves falling on Lamble. The building would be far too high for a tree to be anywhere near the same height as Lamble's room and the murky weather apparent in the filmed vista would not allow the casting of strong shadows.

What have we got, so far?
Two black roses, three corpses...
[shouting from off screen
Four white feathers...
And a partridge in a pear tree.
Traditional bugle call
