Steed finds a mine of information - Emma goes underground
In a remote village, a drunk sees the ghostly form of a miner rise up from his grave. Despite the state of the witness, Steed and Mrs. Peel arrive to investigate and meet the ghost-hunting representatives of two rival agencies - F.O.G. (Friends of Ghosts) and S.M.O.G. (Scientific Measurement of Ghosts). After the two agents encounter Kermit the Hermit, a derelict who hears noises from underground, the S.M.O.G. agent is killed and Mrs. Peel is kidnapped by a ghost. Steed investigates the mining disaster which killed thirty men five years ago, while Mrs. Peel wakes up to find herself in a secret city located directly under the village…
