  • Brains Brains....

    This was a real freaky episode. A billionaire tycoon has died but is kept alive by keeping his brain in a mechanical monstrosity. It's just a disturbing but very comic book worthy episode.

    Gault's Brain

    Interesting concept. Quite chilling the scene where the surgeon goes to cut open the athletes skull in order to implant Gault's brain in it. Also the axe nearly hitting Diana is potentially quite gruesome and the scene where they dump her in the lake sealed in a barrel is the stuff of claustrophobic nightmares (and Penelope Pitstop). Great performance from sci-fi legend Paul Richman ("It's a cook book!") as Dr Crippen (the same name as the infamous Dr who murdered his wife in Victorian society and was later caught alongside his mistress via the first use of a telegram in a criminal investigation). When confronted with WW why doesn't Gault's brain just use his power of telekinesis to strip her, do villains in the 70s not realise that her power rests in her belt and bracelets? Once again we have villains who escape, it would be great to see them again.
