When a number of amateur astronomers are all found dead, their hair bleached white, Steed joins up with a small group of stargazers who believe there is life on Venus, whilst Emma goes chasing mysterious bright lights through the countryside.
Not too bad of a way to introduce the colour episodes. A witty (but realistic) sci-fi plot with quite a few quirky characters. Too bad all the episodes to follow were not more like this.
Don't tell anyone, but lasers don't do anything shown in the episode--least of all make a loud sound. But then, it's just a silly TV show. If we can accept telepathic man-eating plants from outer space, I suppose we can live with noisy lasers.

When the Brigadier is shutting down the record players, he shuts down the one nearest the viewer on the right, which he didn't start!
