Episode Summary

EDIT
Dirtier by the Dozen
AIRED:
Gambit was due to meet an agent called Travis, but he finds him dead, tightly clutching a can of film. When Steed views the film, it proves to show soldiers fighting in a forest. There seems to be nothing very special about the film, but it must have been important. Then a general disappears, and a wounded soldier is kidnapped from a country hospital. Suspicion falls on the Commandos at a nearby army base, and Steed, Purdey and Gambit have to find out what is going on.moreless
