Tricky one, as itself its not a bad script and a good indication of how Bryce wanted the season to go had he stayed on, but the disjointed production lets it down ad the blonde wig is just frankly insulting to poor Linda. They'd have been better off reshooting the whole thing in my view.

I had memories of this episode from some time in the past - The trampoline and music, the break in, but nothing else.

So I had resigned myself to it being a lesser episode, given all the stories of trouble on the production side.

But, I rather liked it.

True, no fantastical elements, no pantomime, no Mother, no oddballness (Is that even a word?). But a rather good story, some great cast - as usual. Two of Miss Thorson's most fabulous looks (The Tartan Kit and the baggy trousers in the tag scene). I thought the tension when trying to stop the fuse was excellent as well.

My biggest problem with it was that it so easily been from any other of the action/adventure shows at the time - easily see this as an episode of 'The Champions", "Department S", "Man in a suitcase" etc etc.

So a good episode, but not the best "Avengers" episode.

7 out of 10.

This episode was written by Donald James (the only epiosode he ever wrote for The Avengers), who also wrote exstensively on The Champions and Department S, which explains why it looks so much like an episode of an ITC show.

I just looked him up - quite a good and prolific writer.

I am very impressed by his tally of good "Space:1999" episodes - many amongst my favourites (Mission of the Darians, Dragon's Domain, Voyager's Return, Earthbound, Bringers of Wonder etc etc).

Did anybody else think that Tara's accent was a bit more posh than usual in this ep?

5/10. A pretty average episode. Some good parts but too many bad ones.

For instance, why would they stage a demonstration with Tara to show that the gun could be handled by anyone untrained when they expected the result to be exactly the opposite? And if Steed and Tara had time enough to escape the hut when there was only an inch of fuse left on the dynamite, why didn't Steed just use an inch in the first place instead of 500 yards?!

I can overlook minor plot holes in the more wacky episodes like "Stop me..." but the more serious storylines need to be tighter.

Average!
