THE GILDED CAGE

TAF TOP TEN

Steed masterminds a robbery
Cathy is framed for murder

Production completed: 25 October 1963
UK Premiere (London, Season 3): 9 February 1964
US Premiere (A&E cable): ca. 13 March 1991

Diabolical Masterminds (click to see category list)Steed and Cathy plan to steal 3 million in gold from an obscure vault. Whilst Steed taps the resources of one J.P. Spagge to pull it off, Cathy is inexplicably arrested, tried and convicted for the renowned criminal's murder. After learning that her ordeal was a hoax arranged by Spagge's minions as a test, Cathy arranges the perfect heist—perhaps a little too perfect...

 IMHO

Exciting, complex and full of interesting characters, this one is solid gold, in spite of a climactic battle that needed some additional rehearsal. Terrific guest cast—in particular, Norman Chappell as the ultimately snobbish manservant Fleming is pure delight, and Edric Connor is sharp and fun as "Abe Lincoln."

 Trivia

Exclusive: Writer Roger Marshall has penned an essay about his tenure on The Avengers.

Neil Wilson appeared in two Police Surgeon episodes, "Smash But No Grab" and "The Bigger They Are."
