  • A deranged scientist, rejected for a top government post, gets his revenge by setting off explosions all over London. He threatens the biggest explosion of all unless sculptress Lynn Jackson is publicly executed and the Saint teams up with Commander Denning of Special Branch to stop him.

  • This is a bizarre episode. A car park attendant (George Cole) has a nuclear bomb which he intends to explode unless a public execution is carried out. he just happens to be the attendant in Simon Templar's basement. He shows Simon what he intends to do in disguise and this is what leads to his downfall as Simon realizes the disguise means he must know the perpetrator. This is one of the domestic episodes which is a far cry from those filmed in Italy. Worth watching to see George and how long you can suspend your disbelief.
