My Thoughts

All of the information on this episode so far has been user-submitted. This episode has not been released on video in North America yet, so I have not been able to view it.

Continuity & Production Problems

The shadow of the boom mike falls on Steed's shoulder when he is discussing Yakob Borb's political asylum.

At the start of act two, when Steed is talking to Ito and Mrs Ramsden, there is a change of camera lens and Steed's head goes out of focus and flies across the screen as the lens is changed.

In act three when Steed is talking to Stepan, Stepan starts speaking before a microphone reaches him and is virtually inaudible.
