Storyline

When Steed returns home early from a holiday, he finds Mrs. Peel replaced by an actress, Georgie Price-Jones. Subsequently everyone involved in the hiring of Georgie is stabbed to death with double-O knitting needles. It seems the real Mrs. Peel has become Lot 17 of 'Art Incorporated', an organization which prides itself on being able to obtain any object for any one as long as the price is right.

The Girl from Auntie
29 July 2020 | by guswhovianSee all my reviews

When Mrs Peel disappears, Steed teams up with Miss Georgie Price-Jones and investigates Gregorio Auntie, who specializes in obtaining the unobtainable.

Despite not making any sense whatsoever, The Girl from Auntie is a very enjoyable romp. While Liz Fraser does a good job as a replacement Mrs Peel, simply no one can compare to Diana Rigg.

Alfred Burke is wonderful as Auntie, while Bernard Cribbins plays a knitting instructor(!). There's lots of fun jokes in the screenplay: a self-defense book written by stunt arranger Ray Austin, a foursome of characters named John, Paul, George and Fred, and a firm of solicitors named Barrett, Barrett & Wimpole. The climatic fight scene is well staged as well.
