Review:

Philip Levene wrote the first show on this volume, "Never, Never Say Die," in which computerized duplicates of brainy scientists and others are causing some havoc. The best part of the show is the setup, in which a corpse walks out of a mortuary and--despite being shot, hit by a car, and electrocuted--keeps on with its rampage. "Epic" is a spooky episode in which Mrs. Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) is kidnapped by a mad director who holds her prisoner in a studio while filming The Destruction of Mrs. Peel. Series coproducer Brian Clemens wrote the inventive script, which finds poor Mrs. Peel in a movie-cliché nightmare, being shot at in a Western saloon, in a World War I setting, and by Indians and Chicago gangsters. Clemens was also behind "The Superlative Seven," which features some familiar faces (Donald Sutherland, Brian Blessed, Charlotte Rampling) in an Agatha Christie-like tale of seven people brought to an island, where one of their numbers is killing off the others. The slightly conventional plot is spruced up by an international conspiracy element, a surprise ending, and the dramatic arrival of Mrs. Peel onto the island--by parachute! --Tom Keogh
