|'The Hour That Never Was'
by Roger Marshall
While travelling with Mrs. Peel to a party held at the soon-to-close airbase of RAF Hamelin, Steed swerves to avoid a dog and crashes his Bentley into a tree. Later, Steed and Mrs. Peel wake up only to discover that the whole base is deserted, and all the clocks have stopped at eleven. When the base begins to vibrate with a piercing sound, Mrs. Peel disappears, and Steed is knocked out. Once again he reawakens at the scene of the car accident, but this time without Mrs. Peel, and when he returns to the air base, the party is in full swing. The key to the mystery may be the milk float that can be heard constantly making its rounds, but where is Mrs. Peel, and how does everything tie in to a visit to the dentist…?
