Steed: "What? Me? Carry a gun?"
 
"You know what they say about men who smoke pipes, Mrs. Gale..."

TRAITOR IN ZEBRA

Steed becomes a shrink
Cathy works on her chemistry*

Production completed: 29 November 1962
UK Premiere (London, Season 2):8 December 1962
US Premiere (A&E cable):ca. 8 February 1991

Selling Secrets (click to see category list)An experimental satellite tracking system is jammed every time it is tested, despite its being a top secret project, and the man accused of being the traitor insists he is innocent. Steed is sent in as a military psychiatrist, and Cathy as a research chemist, to track down the real traitor.

 IMHO

Somewhat uneven but otherwise quite enjoyable overall, this installment presents an intriguing mix of rather detailed science and pure escapism espionage.

 Trivia

Some scenes were pre-recorded on 28 November 1962 in advance of the main recording.

From the Oops Department: What's wrong with the following images? Hint: Look where this episode is listed on A&E's DVD labels, top row, and in their menus, bottom row...

*This unofficial subtitle is by Yours Truly.

 Best Scene

In the tense climax, Steed talks the real traitor out of blowing up the installation.
