A British courier is attacked in Jamaica, and he protects the contents of his diplomatic bag at the expense of his life. But why? The case only contains mundan documents.

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

When the camera cuts from a holiday location sequence to a studio shot, a beach girl extra is waiting for her cue to throw the beach ball.

A picture, meant to convince us that we are viewing a busy airport, fails to do so when it reflects the shadows of passengers passing through the airport lounge.

This time the boom mike swings briefly into view moments after Steed shouts "Cheers!" in a bar in Santiago... and again while Steed is holding a gun to the head of Anna, Rosas' daughter.

When Baxter is murdered we hear the knife clatter to the floor and yet it is in his back when he drops.

Fluffed Dialogue

The actor playing Rosas fluffs his dialogue when laying out his plans to Muller. He should have said: "We want no violence in the initial phases."

A couple of bikini clad women cause One-Ten to stutter his line about the murderer.
