No horsing around in this one

"Trojan Horse" is an excellent storyline that could have been made with Mrs. Peel, involving gambling and murder centered around a stable where the jockeys are taught how to assassinate foreign politicians. T. P. McKenna, who would return for "Death at High Prices" and "Noon-Doomsday," makes for one of the series' finest villains, Tony Heuston, chief bookmaker, using blackmail to transform debt-ridden recruits into reluctant assassins, who becomes enamored of Cathy Gale's figures (something viewers already were enamored of). Steed effortlessly flirts with every female in this episode, making for a more personal viewing involvement, and all the characters are well developed (especially the girls). Derek Newark would return for "From Venus with Love" and "Wish You Were Here," Arthur Pentelow would return for "False Witness," and Geoffrey Whitehead would return for "Pandora."
