Reviews

Two more escapades for playboy crime-fighters Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) and Lord Brett Sinclair (Roger Moore). In 'To the Death, Baby' Brett and Danny try to place a spanner in the works when a gigolo begins courting an heiress. In 'Someone Waiting' Brett becomes the object of murderous attentions when he takes up racing driving again.

The Persuaders influenced me more than any other programme as a child and it still ranks as my favourite series. It's wonderful to get the episodes on DVD these days - the resolution is sharper than on the old tapes that I bought. These two episodes are not the best of the series, but are far more enjoyable than the stuff on TV today - especially if you like a bit of escapism and the premise of the show.
Basil Dearden's direction for 'To the Death, Baby' is less tight than some of his film work and the première 'Overture' (still my favourite), owing in part to a script that could have done with a bit more work. Instead, it relies (though this is no bad thing) on the wink-wink acting of Tony Curtis and Roger Moore.
'Someone Watching' is marginally better story-wise although it does become fairly predictable, even by Persuaders standards. In some respects, the English-filmed episodes never cheered me up as much as the Continental ones, thanks to their greyness. This episode follows that rule, sadly.
Don't get me wrong. I am not saying that these are only suitable for die-hard Persuaders fans like me. If anything, I'm nit-picking. This is still an entertaining two-hour package, not a bad way to reminisce about those good ol' ITC actioners and the world before political correctness.

What can you say about this pairing? Sheer genius. Curtis and Moore light up the screen and make every one of these episodes an absolute gem. Some think it's a crime that we are only left with 24 vintage Persuaders! shows but it probably adds to the cult status of the project. It seems unbelievable that the Americans didn't like it and it had to be stopped after one run. Everything is topped off with what has to be the best theme tune ever produced, penned by the legendary John Barry. Ah, I could listen to that all day and just watch my Persuaders! DVDs. Heaven...
