    This unusual show ran for two seasons on British TV in the 60's and was an attempt by the BBC to emulate the success of "THE AVENGERS" and is very similar in tone.The premise was that a Victorian gentleman adventurer called Adam Adamant was lured into a trap by his arch-enemy The Face and frozen in a slab of ice where he laid for over 60 years until in 1966 workmen excavating the premises discovered him and he was thawed out. Escaping from hospital and bewildered by the sights and sounds of contemporary London, he is rescued by a typical 60's babe called Georgina Jones, whose grandfather had told her tales of the adventures of Adamant whom he had known in his youth. Together they join forces to fight crime in the present day with Adamant using his formidable skill with sword and fist to see them through many deadly encounters.

    The hero was played with considerable panache by Gerald Harper who gave Adamant a winning combination of ruthlessness and charm. The series is rarely seen today and looks somewhat dated (it was not on film) but if ever a TV show from the 60's should be remade it is certainly this one.moreless
