Steed Finds a Bogie
Emma Gets a Birdie

Produced: 6 September to ca. 15 September 1965
UK Premiere (London, Season 4): 28 January 1966
US Premiere (New York, Season 1): 18 August 1966

Strange goings-on at a golf course lead our duo to discover a small group of malcontents selling scientific secrets to "the other side" via satellite.


Sorry to report it is terribly uneven, falls quite flat in the clubhouse scenes, and does not feature one single interesting character. About the only redeeming qualities are a few cute scenes (see Best Scene and Best Line).


Stunt Arranger Ray Austin makes brief appearance in the fight between Collins and Mrs. Peel in the bunker: you can just catch a glimpse of him doubling for Francis Matthews as he jumps Emma.

One line of dialog, delivered to Emma in the clubhouse, is really quite an eyebrow-raiser: "I wouldn't mind giving you a stroke or two, on or off the course." Mark McDevitt wonders how this one slipped past the censors...

Acronym Alert: CGC is the Craigleigh Golf Club.

 On Location

Does the entrance to the golf club (above left) look familiar? Perhaps you just saw it in "The Girl from Auntie."

 Best Scene

In an attempt to throw off the timing of a golf match, Steed performs a series of bizarre pre-tee-off rituals, which includes checking the course with a sextant (see the screen grab).

 Best Line

Laid up after being hit with a rocket-powered golf ball, Steed credits his trusty hat for saving his life, and Emma quips, "It really is the height of pessimism to have a hat lined with chain mail."
