The Thirteenth Hole
31 July 2020 | by guswhovianSee all my reviews

When an agent is killed, Steed and Mrs Peel follow a lead to a golf club.

The Thirteenth Hole is an extremely disappointing episode. It's tedious, and even Macnee and Rigg can't save it. The usually reliable Patrick Allen is a dull villain; Francis Matthews is quite good, but his character gets bumped off halfway through.

The script is riddled with plot holes. The villains plan is really rather silly, and the production looks cheaper than usual. Just an example of the bad writing: in one scene, Waversham is heavily implied to be one of the baddies, but you never see his character again.

The "golf gun" idea is pretty neat though. However, this is definitely a low point for the series.
