User Reviews

 
Very interesting topic, ahead of its time.

Yes, what a true interesting story, telling us the fraffic of medicine products and monitored by a former British protectorate which wants to discredit England by providing fake stuff with poison inside. Very modern topic for its time,but not only. This tale gives a kind of geo political approach with, as settings, the former British colonial empire. Amusing scene whith Steed reading stock market newspaper whilst Cathy Gale gets out the shower booth.
