  • What is the link between a priceless stamp and the secret schemes of a neo-Nazi organization?

    Such a surprise to find Patrick Macnee wearing a hat other than his regulation bowler! This dotty episode pays simultaneous tributes to Alfred Hitchcock (with a replay of the dentist's-chair scene from the 1934 version of "The Man Who Knew Too Much") and Fritz Lang (with its massive, secret criminal organization plotting overnight world domination); but it does seem in rather a rush to get to its conclusion. You won't have too much trouble guessing the identity of the would-be new fuehrer, but the episode does have some charming philatelic esoterica with which to buttress its ridiculous plot and the Old Etonian tie sported by one senior villain makes a nicely subversive touch.moreless
