The simple premise of this story, of a scientist killing rivals using biological agents delivered to specific victims in sealed envelopes, is notable in the show for being completely plauasable and topical. In fact, its so topical that its timeless and is as relevant today as on first broadcast. The window dressing of the secret base and the various eccentric methods of the organisation disguise the story as the usual 'middle era' SF-fantasy, but its interesting how aware the show could actually be. The cast in this story is full of familiar faces, and I especially enjoyed Fulton Mackay (Dr Who & the Silurians) as this episode's diabolical mastermind! Tara doesn't achieve as much her as in other stories perhaps, cast in the role of victim for much of the story, but Linda was lovely as always and the yellow/grey outfit with the hat was absolutely stunning! One additional point of interest is the callous way that Steed kills Mackay's character Glover at the end of the episode, by releasing the biological agent into the tunnel the villain was climbing down, which seems to show quite a dark side to his personality behind all the cheeriness! Overall? Not the most memorable or quirky episode, but a solid 7/10 nonetheless.

Not a bad one at all - actually a very topical plot, and quite convincing. Enjoyed Tara's clever use of ether and potassium chloride (?). I was surprised that Steed allowed himself to be talked into not doing anything to find her - he's usually off and running when his partners are in danger. Slightly reinforces the view of Tara as a victim, unfortunately. Steed makes up for it by being quite elegant, though.

I actually forgot I had watched this one!

Not bad - some great sets (The Nose!), wonderful locations (Lucky that most of the men who needed to be infected lived in Regent's Park!!!) and a great role for Fulton Mackay.

I agree with earlier comments that Tara is turning into a bit of a victim.

Overall - fun.
