Four more episodes of the cult Seventies action series. In 'Five Miles to Midnight', playboy crime-fighters Lord Brett Sinclair (Roger Moore) and Danny Wilde (Tony Curtis) are charged with getting an assassin-turned-informant out of Italy. 'The Gold Napoleon' sees the duo investigating a failed attempt on Danny's life. 'Take Seven' has them become involved in an explosive situation after attempting to help out an attractive heiress whose long-missing brother has returned to claim his inheritance. Finally, in 'Greensleeves', Brett returns to the derelict Sinclair family home when he discovers that it has acquired a new and unwanted occupant.

In my opinion, the episodes have stood the test of time on account of the sheer dynamism shown by these two characters. At least two (if not all 4) of the episodes on the disk, will have you almost on the edge of your seat, such is the suspense!
I love seeing those old cars from a bygone era; also the inside of peoples' homes and the way they dressed and behaved (totally different back then)! Being screened in colour, rather than black and white, actually seems to bring it home more as to how times have changed.
On the downside, the dialogue and facial expressions seem rather stilted and although set in what is now regarded as the day and age of sexual liberation, the way the duo behave towards women, at times, seems frustratingly prudish in the context of today's era. I could well imagine the younger audience totally baffled by their behaviour in this respect!
The positive points, however, far outweigh the negative ones. You really are very unlikely to be disappointed by these strong actors and their exploits! The episodes are very exciting and the 'time-warp' factor does not detract, but adds to it!
Superb series that probably holds little for a more modern audience. But if you grew up in the 70's this will be pure nostalgia.
Story lines are sometimes a little silly, but the locations and the chemistry between the two lead characters are superb.
And that theme tune.........

What a wonderful series, so politically incorrect these days, love the theme tune.Published 23 months ago by RJ
Classic needs to be remade but doubt the talent out there exists to pull off what Moore and Curtis managedPublished on 14 July 2014 by MR IZZAT JAFF
