This is supposed to be Doc Holiday urging the doctors companion out the door with a strategically placed slap.
Since this is an English production I expected a lot more than a slap here or there. Steed handled that umbrella so well I assumed he would also swing a cane well. While attempting to enlist a pretty accomplice he demonstrates his form on a cigarette girl.
Missed opportunity. In this episode two women try to kill Steed and after he disables one by pulling her jacket over her arms he places a chair on top of her. He then pulls the second assassin over his kness and instead of giving her what for simply tickles her until she answers his questions. Some might find this stimulating anyway.
This color episode features Steed surprising a nurse with a good smack on her ass. She jumps and turns around so Steed can lock her in a cabinet. The look of appreciation on Steeds face after says it all.
I have to admit when I eventually saw The Avengers like so many adolescent males I had a major crush on Mrs. Peel. In the very first episode that featured Mrs. Peel they did more than shake hands.
This episode shows little but my imagination filled in the missing parts.
I think a whole post still needs to be dedicated to Mrs. Peel. Coming soon!
