The episode was entertaining enough, but towards the middle it started to drag. Viewing the episode it was plain to see the different elements which made the show a classic, had always been there. Creepy Locations, Bizarre Deaths, international crime and wry humour. As Leonard White says on the dvd, necessity is the mother of invention and thats when the show really came into it’s own.
