Come on how about some words on this classic episode. Possibly the finest thing Sidney Hayers ever directed.

8/10

I always think there's a better episode in here than we actually get, the car rally could have included some interesting locations but it's mostly just barns. Michael Winders only script, nice that they open the door again after Clemens and Levene hogged the writing duties for so long. There are some good gags but it reminds me of 'Take me to your leader' from season 6 in that the script device doesn't get used to full advantage.

Despite the fact that the weather is rather cloudy, it's one of those lovely summery episodes.

Love Laurier Johnson's score.

Valerie Van Ost is amusing in a sixties groovy chick way. Edwin Richfield and Neil McCarthy look to be having fun as bumbling agents. Norman Bowler is probably the only one playing it straight.

At our place this summer we've been showing movies for family & friends outdoors after the sun goes down. We showed this one last night and it was a big hit. It's a great episode for this type of venue - very visual and for the most part light-hearted. Made some new Avenger fans.

I'm so pleased when The Avengers can still weave its magic and people can still enjoy the series and this episode (as its one of my favourites) in particular and if it makes them want to watch more then that's a bonus.

This was always one of my favourite episodes, it recalls memories of the long hot summers I enjoyed as a child, and of making hideouts from the freshly cut grass in the fields behind our house. Oddly over the years, and with each new viewing, Valerie Van Ost (Penny) increasingly irritates me. the running 'husband No.3004' joke grinds on my nerves, as does her voice. She's all a bit too much, and these days tends to spoil my enjoyment of the episode. One of the best stories in the series though I have to say.
