INTERCRIME

Steed investigates a crime syndicate
Cathy is a member of it*

Production completed: 29 December 1962
UK Premiere (London, Season 2): 7 January 1963
US Premiere (A&E cable): ca. 14 February 1991

Diabolical Masterminds (click to see category list)Two small-time robbers are shot in the midst of a heist. Thing is, their killer left the bag of jewels behind. When one of the robbers recovers, he is "holed up" in Steed's apartment, where he is pumped for information about an international crime syndicate. Posing as Hilda Stern, a member of the German branch of Intercrime, Cathy infiltrates their head office. Only trouble is, the real Hilda also shows up...
 

 IMHO

While it sometimes gets lost in its own convolutions, this installment is brightened by some fine performances, particularly Honor Blackman as Cathy as Hilda, and Kenneth J. Warren (a.k.a. Z.Z. von Schnerk) as the mysterious "F."
 

 Trivia

Forgetting to close the door behind her, Julia Arnall (playing Hilda Stern) gives us a glimpse of a huge TV camera being wheeled through the set (third image).

Some scenes were pre-recorded on 28 December 1962 in advance of the main recording (obviously not the one mentioned above).

The camera script notes that this episode would air on Saturday 6 January 1963 on ABC and other regions, but in London on ATV (along with TWW, WTV and CHA) it would debut on Sunday 7 January. Television historian and author Andrew Pixley believes that this change in scheduling took place with this episode, and for the rest of the season the show's premiere was on ABC on the Saturday, with ATV London taking it the following night.
