Dr. David Keel, just days away from getting married, has his life thrown into chaos when his bride-to-be is the target of an organized crime hit. Feeling that Scotland Yard isn’t doing enough to solve the murder, Keel decides to take on some amateur sleuthing, but when he discovers that heroin is involved, he realizes this is bigger than him. A mysterious man in a bowler hat is waiting for Keel in his flat when he returns home, but not to kill him. Instead, the man offers to help Keel bring the killer to justice…but he needs Keel to act undercover and become part of the heroin trade. If Dr. Keel can’t bring himself to trust this stranger, he may never identify the murderer.

Dr. David Keel’s life has become dangerous. Having already helped his mysterious benefactor break up a dangerous drug ring, he has found himself entangled in a new world, trying to bring his fiancee’s killers to justice, even at the cost of the orderly operation of his own practice. But Keel’s mystery man does at least now have a name – John Steed – but everything else about him remains unknown. Steed has another job for Keel, putting Keel’s life in danger as he delves into the world of organized crime once again. But this time, Steed promises the payoff for which Keel has been waiting: the chance to lock up the man who killed his fiancee.

Steed’s superiors assign him to infiltrate a counterfeiting ring, impersonating a skilled counterfeiter who’s just been sprung from prison. He succeeds in getting inside the operation, but finds himself at the mercy of a vicious thug nicknamed “the Cardinal” (real name: Bishop). Desperately needing help from the outside world, Steed can only call on Dr. Keel and hope that he can provide an escape route…or at least a timely, if unwitting, distraction.

One For The Mortuary

The Avengers

This synopsis is based upon the Big Finish audio adaptation of the original television script. The original episode’s master tape is lost and presumed destroyed. This audio adaptation can be found in Volume 1 of Big Finish’s The Avengers: The Lost Episodes series.

Steed is involved in an operation to keep a major medical secret out of the wrong hands. A drug that temporarily presents the appearance of a cure (but allows a disease to continue doing damage to its victim) could be a powerful weapon in the hands of an assassin, and Steed and his superiors mean to keep it from being misused. Steed enlists the help of Dr. Keel, who already has an invitation to the World Health Organization in Geneva, to deliver the drug’s chemical formula to an ally within the WHO. But almost immediately, things go wrong: Keel is targeted and followed before he even leaves British soil. Steed must follow Keel to Geneva in order to keep his friend and ally from coming to a grim end (and to ensure the safety of the free world into the bargain).
