Trivia

Emma's leather dress was so expensive (over £400), that there was only one available, worn both by The Avengers: You Have Just Been Murdered (1967) and stunt-woman Cyd Child. They first did the scenes with Diana, then the fighting scenes with Cyd. It turned out, that it wasn't fit to fight, it had to be mended several times between the scenes on the bridge, and after completing it was completely ruined. See more »

Goofs

Unwin tries to open the front door of his house and finds it locked. A minute later, Skelton opens the same door easily. See more »

Exciting episode
21 March 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I remind this episode from my childhood. I love it, but there is no fantasy here, nor spy game, only thriller. But two things are unexplained: Rathbone character, who seems to be so greedy and scared - see how he cut himself from the outside world .... I don't undertsand why he drives his old car with no protection at all. And nothing is explained about John Steed's sudden wealth at the very end of the story. NO SPOILER HERE.
