Submit a Nit
Dial a Deadly Number
December 3, 1965

Written by Roger Marshall
Directed by Don Leaver

Plot Summary

Important businessmen are dying of heart failure and certain members of the financial world are making a killing as a result. Steed and Emma investigate a twisted trail of leads that involve bankers, brokers, bleepers... and fine wine!

My Thoughts

One of the series' best episodes ever. The plot is intelligent, the script is sharp, and there are enough twists and turns to keep you entertained for the entire hour. A shame more of the later episodes were not like this.

Continuity & Production Problems

Frederick Yuill (played by Gerald Sim) swallows--while he's dead! Look for it while Emma examines him.

And speaking of Yuill, he is introduced to Steed (as well as being listed in the credits) as Frederick Yuill, but Steed later refers to him as Brian Yuill when speaking to Jago.
