Steed catches a falling star - Emma makes a movie
The insane film producer Z. Z. Von Schnerk decides to revive his career by chronicling the actual death of Mrs. Peel on film. He and his two mad assistants kidnap Mrs. Peel and take her to an exact duplicate of her own flat, located in an abandoned film studio; they then proceed to shoot reels of bizarre and pointless footage of her in deadly scenarios inspired by epic movies. Can Steed get to her in time, or will Mrs. Peel receive her final curtain call?

*Featuring John Steed and Mrs. Emma Peel
*”Mrs Peel, we’re needed”: Steed bursts into Mrs. Peel’s flat and starts to say “Mrs. Peel - “ but before he can finish, she replies, “Sorry, Steed, I'm needed elsewhere!”
*The tag scene: Apparently in Mrs. Peel's flat, she and Steed find the adverts for the cinema to be uninspiring. Deciding to spend the evening at home, they then knock down what was really a movie set and walk off!
