I absolutely adore this episode. Great comic scenes for both of our stars, together and separate: Emma's scenes with Piedi and the tattooist, Steed's scenes with the banker, the entire final dance and fight sequence. A light, frothy episode with a strong secondary cast (including Mr. Honor Blackman). So much fun.

Agreed, an episode with a lot of entertainment value, a lot of effort put in by the cast, and some interesting angles as examined by the gorgeous essay in the "Bright Horizons" book.

Thank you, Franky! Very Happy It's a really enjoyable episode, and it tends to slip through the cracks as it were, compared to some of season four's heavy-hitters. But there's lots to recommend it, and everyone involved seems to be having fun.

After the disappointment of "The 13th Hole" I was a bit nervous of the next one. The rest of the family had no appetite for watching it with me.

Although similar in tone I found this episode was on a completely different level. Lots of humour, wacky characters and situations and great pace. And most importantly, unlike the previous effort, a solid premise (by TA standards).

8 from me, I feel we're back on track.

The closing scene in which Steed and Mrs. Peel dance their elegant way into some sort of cloud-like oblivion is iconic to all romantically inclined fans, myself included.

Great story, very amusing, Steed is gorgeous, sexual innuendos, just great all around!

Love this episode. Dances, nice music, good action, style and performers. Many fun scenes: Chester walks from room to room Laughing , Steed in bank, husky voice of Captain Noble, dialogues of Steed with Lucille Banks, etc... Memorable scene: Steed opens the door on the upper floor leading to the street.

Dear fans, welcome to last news about versions of episode "Quick-Quick Slow Death" (Post dated by Dec 01, 2016). :

P.S./
I remember Quick-Quick Slow Death was by the episode when Sergey Pronin, a member of Steedumbrella, said when watching for first time: "I have to admit, founding I like the fourth season is much more than a fifth." Very Happy
