Storyline

In 1945 Russian soldier Stanislav stole the secret of longevity from a Tibetian monk. He created an army of 252 sleepers that were stationed all over Europe. In 1965, one of them awoke by accident and went on a rampage in Berkshire. 12 years later, the same thing happens to a larger group in France. Only in death do the Russian soldiers show their advanced age. Steed, recognizing the symptoms, takes off for France with Gambit and Purdey. Written by The TV Archaeologist

Trivia

Diana Rigg has two short appearances talking to Steed on the phone by using scenes from "The Winged Avenger" and "The Hidden Tiger". So she, her clothes, her flat, nothing seems to have even changed the slightest bit within 10 years. See more »

Goofs

In the 1965 scenes at the beginning you can see 1970's cars in the back ground (when the soldier leaps the fence) See more »

Great potential but missed it.
4 June 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

The story line gave us great promises, but something is missing here. I don't know exactly what. The plot is so unusual settings and topic: Russians sleepers agents and soldiers who, decades later, operate in the deep French countryside. But even failed, this episode is quite entertaining, at least doesn't bring us the worst of the series. Brian Clemes shines here, once more. This could ahve been a topic for the previous AVENGERS seasons. But the sequence with Gambit jumping on the tree could have been avoided.
