Too Many Christmas Trees
December 25, 1965

Written by Tony Williamson
Directed by Roy Baker

Plot Summary

At Christmastime, Steed is having bizarre, rather prophetic dreams. Trying to cheer him up, Emma invites him to a Christmas party, at the home of a Dickens enthusiast, where a secret telepathic experiment just happens to be going on.

My Thoughts

Another X-Files-style episode. Although the plot may leave a little to be desired, the sets, costumes, and Christmas atmosphere are great!

Continuity & Production Problems

When Steed & Emma are driving to Storey's house, Steed's car windshield undergoes some extraordinary changes, unremarked upon by either Steed or Mrs. Peel. In the location shots, the car has a full windshield while the studio shots it has two tiny wind screens.

When Emma collects Steed's cards to open them, she drops one. Maybe it should be called, "Too Many Christmas Cards"!
