Page 12 of 192



Production completed: 13 April 1961
UK Premiere (London, Season 1): 15 April 1961

Framed for the murder of one of his patients, Dr. Keel is vindicated by Steed, who suspects the woman's dancing school pianist, a man accused of several murders. When Steed closes in on the man, whose M.O. is to electrocute his victims by throwing a radio into a bathtub, he finds the man has eloped with a young woman in possession of a large cache of diamonds. Steed and Keel arrive just in time to prevent her murder, and the jewels are returned to the woman's mother.


Geoffrey Palmer appeared in the Police Surgeon episode, "Smash But No Grab."
