    Three of the best episodes of this series came back to back to back in Season 5(Diana Rigg's color season).'Dead Man's Treasure','Positive-Negative Man' and this one:'You've Just Been Murdered'.A man named Needle has his headquarters in a haystack(typical Avengers humor).He hires assassins to blackmail millionaires to withdraw money willingly and give it to him.He does this by sending hitmen who intimidate these men by 'killing' them several different times over.Always they leave a business card saying," you've just been murdered".The card also gives a phone number to call, and 'please bring one million dollars',in order to avoid one's own REAL murder.Unique twist on blackmail.One of the series' best.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The villain, named 'Needle' because he is so hard to find, has his headquarters in a haystack.

    • Tag: Steed is seen at home piling box after box of his savings into a pyramid in the centre of his living-room - each box of halfpennies containing 10,000 worth of Steed's future. Emma, totting up the amount as the boxes grow higher, comments that she never knew Steed was so wealthy. Suddenly she stops in her tacks. "That's 9,999. You're just short of a million', she tells him. Steed is fraught with despair: who ever heard of a nine-thousand-nine-hundred and ninety-nine-aire? It's Emma to the rescue as, handing Steed a half-penny piece, she comments 'You are now a self-made, fully-fledged, halfpenny millionaire!'

  • QUOTES (2)
