The Golden Eggs
21 November 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

The episode starts off with the theft of some golden eggs in a scientist's laboratory.

Steed is not convinced that with Dr Ashe's claim that nothing has been stolen and he sends Cathy Gale to investigate.

When the burglar dies, it becomes clear that the golden eggs contained a deadly virus developed at the laboratory. The theft of the eggs were made to order by dastardly Redfern.

Stees is very much second fiddle to Cathy Gale in this one. You sense that some of the staff in the lab have something to hide.

A story with deadly viruses should had been more involving and dramatic than it is here.
