  • Steed and Cathy foil a coup d'etat in South America.

    A routine sort of episode, one which, with a few changes in names and dialogue, could have fitted into many another British TV thriller series of the early 60s - "Top Secret" or "Danger Man", for instance. The byplay between Patrick Macnee and Honor Blackman is pretty enjoyable, but the segment reminds one altogether too vividly of how basic and unsophisticated the techniques of British television could be, a half-century ago; this is especially true of the insertions of stock footage to hint at picturesque foreign locations. The villains are uninteresting, but, in a brief role, there is Valerie Sarruf, who played Natasha in ITV's three-hour version of "War And Peace" in 1963. Whatever happened to her?moreless
