Dressed To Kill:
Season 3, Episode 14.
Originally aired on December 28 1963.
Guest stars Anneke Wills who would later to become Doctor Who companion Polly.
On the same day this episode was shown the second episode of the original Dalek story was shown and Anneke Wills will meet the Daleks in The Power of the Daleks.
The Power of the Daleks had guest starred Robert James and he narrowly missed Anneke Wills in The Avengers as he appeared in Death a la Carte, the preceding episode to Dressed to Kill.
Whilst still on the subject of Daleks, Steed in Dressed To Kill mentioned the scenario of mutation from a nuclear missile and the Daleks are inhabited by mutants. So somewhat a fitting coincidence that this Avengers episode and the second episode of the Daleks showing the Daleks first full appearance came on the same day.
In Dressed To Kill, Anneke Wills is dressed up as Pussy Cat and her character is credited as such. This is episode in which Honor Blackman plays Cathy Gale. Somewhat prophetically, Honor Blackman left The Avengers not long after Dressed To Kill to play Pussy Galore in Goldfinger.
Still on the subject of Doctor Who companions, Honor Blackman would turn up in Doctor Who in the penultimate Trial of a Time Lord segment Terror of the Vervoids in which the companion was Bonnie Langford as Mel.
Anneke Wills would make another appearance in The Avengers but as a different character in the Emma Peel episode The £50,000 Breakfast which aired in October 1967 not long after she completed her Doctor Who stint.
Whilst still on links between Doctor Who & The Avengers in close proximity, Dressed To Kill also had someone dressed up as Napoleon and almost a year after Dressed To Kill was shown Napoleon would be in Doctor Who in the final episode of The Reign of Terror.
Dressed to Kill is a very thrilling episode and plays well on the Ten Little Indians premise.
It was funny that when Pussy Cat sees Steed and Cathy who were handcuffed together we got the impression that she was going to release them only she left them without releasing them at all!

The White Elephant:

Season 3, Episode 15.

The episode title refers to an elephant that has gone missing from an animal distribution centre that has the fitting name of Noah’s Ark.

Despite the title and notwithstanding it had gone missing there was no sight at all in the episode of the said elephant in this not bad episode.

The Little Wonders:

Season 3, Episode 16.

Guest stars David Bauer and Lois Maxwell.

Bauer has a remarkable resemblance to Roger Delgado (who himself had guested in two The Avengers episodes) and there are similarities here between this episode and Delgado’s stint as the Master in Doctor Who.

In The Little Monsters, Bauer played Bishop, a man of the cloth and Delgado as the Master posed as a vicar Mr Magister in the Doctor Who season 8 closer The Daemons.

A toy doll played its part in The Little Monsters while another toy, a teddy bear had an infamous part in Delgado’s first Doctor Who story as the Master, the season 8 opener Terror of the Autons.

Enjoyable episode with Bishop doing a recruitment of other men of the other cloth and the decision on to choose for an upcoming task.

Quite bizarre the selection method that was used here thanks to the Maxwell character.

The Wringer:
Season 3, Episode 17.

Guest stars Barry Letts who would later become producer of Doctor Who.

Another guest star here is Paul Whitsun-Jones who would later appear in Doctor Who during Letts’ tenure as producer in The Mutants.

Absolutely thrilling episode in which Steed has been framed as a traitor and touching what Cathy went through to help Steed clear his name.

The Secrets Broker:
Season 3, Episode 19.
Not a memorable episode.
The plot of what went on at a wine shop couple with that of a love affair seems somewhat disjointed for its eventual conclusion.

Trojan Horse:

Season 3, Episode 20.

The setting of this episode is at a racetrack in which the episode title alludes to.

Not bad episode about jockeys as assassins.



Coincidentally some days after watching this episode saw Glue 1.4 Tina/Dominic and that too also had a horse race in it.

Build a Better Mousetrap:
Season 3, Episode 21.
Enjoyable episode with two kooky sisters, a motorcycle gang and the plot about a nuclear facility.

The Outside-In Man:
Season 3, Episode 22.
A spy long thought to be dead suddenly comes back alive.
Here he carries out an assassination assignment on a dictator that he was originally given not long before he was thought to have died even though orders on this assassination has since been cancelled.
What ensues is not anyone expected and brilliant revelation at that.

The Charmers:
Season 3, Episode 23.
Remade as the Emma Peel episode The Correct Way To Kill.
Agents from both sides of the Iron Curtain joined forces to find the third party who has been killing their agents.
Steed and Cathy have basically undergoes an exchange programme in their tasks to find the third party.
Quite fun that Steed is paired up with Olga.
In retrospect should not be surprise that the Warren Mitchell character turned out to be the real villain.

Concerto:
Antepenultimate episode of season 3.
A pianist gets framed for murder of a young girl who in turn was framing him for sexual assault. It seems somewhat bizarre that a perceived sexual assault got presented on this programme that was broadcast in 1964.
Absolutely very good mystery that was explored culminating in an assassination attempt on the Trade Minister.
Nigel Stock was very fun as Zalenko including what he learnt from watching British television.
Zalenko also mentioned that there hasn't been a successful political assassination in Britain since 1812. This was in reference to the assassination of British Prime Minister Spencer Percival that year.
