Trivia

The character of Steed seldom used a gun, a character trait developed largely due to 'Patrick McNee''s dislike of them due to his combat experiences with the Royal Navy during World War 2. However he does occasionally employ them and kills 2 men with a handgun during this eps final shootout and 'Dead men are dangerous' See more »

Quotes

A Non Avengers episode but try it...
31 May 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Boring, if you expect for an AVENGERS atmosphere experiment. This is pure espionage, not badly done, not at all, and I would say unusual for the series, but it could have fit for any other episodeof a common espionage show. Something remains inetresting though, it's some kind of rivalry, misunderstanding, feud, between Steed and Gambit around Purdey.
