    I was surprised to see this kind of multi-layered plot in such an early episode. A large cast of characters gets to share screen time in this story of misdirection and deception.



    One small segment seems to be missing from the DVD transfer as we cut from Steed being surprised at knife-point by one of the enemy agents to a scene of Steed and Cathy in a lingerie shop. It's not hard to piece together what must have happened, but this odd break and a rather hastily-done conclusion are the only things to keep this one from a 10 in my book.moreless
