Intended as Cathy Gale's first appearance
31 December 2010 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"Warlock" was the second appearance of Honor Blackman's Cathy Gale, but the script still has traces of its being intended as her first. Douglas Muir returns as One Ten, Steed's superior, who assigns him to investigate the sudden illness (and later death) of a scientist who had no physical reason for his condition, but was victimized by black magic. Conspiring together are series veterans Peter Arne ("Death on the Slipway," "The Golden Eggs," "Room Without a View"), as the head of the coven, Dr. Cosmo Gallion, and John Hollis ("The Cybernauts," "The Superlative Seven," "Legacy of Death") as Markel, the foreign agent demanding the dead scientist's hidden formula, taken without his knowledge by Steed, seen arriving at the local museum to see widowed anthropologist Catherine Gale, an expert on voodoo and black magic, from her time spent in Africa. Mrs. Gale already shows herself as more than able to deal with Dr. Gallion and his minions singlehandedly, even overcoming Steed himself in a tussle at the scientist's home, where The Avengers discover his housekeeper's dead body. Disappointing entry that fails to build momentum, but the two stars are beginning to gel.
