Tonight On The Video Channel
This episode is fun, almost 'Danger Man' or 'Avengers' like in it's style, with a touch of Mission Impossible' thrown into the mix.
The girl is a born killer, Mister X a born survivor, and Professor Schnipps as mad as, well as mad as Napoleon Bonaparte. But Napoleon Bonaparte wasn't mad was he? This episode puts me in mind of a James Bond novel and I have written about that before, Ian Flemings 'Moonraker.'
Poor old Potter, sent out into the field as a shoeshine boy. I never could understand how a man could get muddy shoes walking down a high street! If only he'd kept his eye more on the game, instead of the girls legs! Colonel Hawke-Englishe blown to bits at the wicket, the awful thing he was one run short of his century!
And the clown? Well I'm sure that's symbolic of something, but I've never been able to put my finger on it. Surrealism? Yes there is that, because who was it who turned the wall screen on again after No.2 had switched it off?!
Be seeing you
