Steed flies to nowhere - Emma does her party piece
Steed is invited to a fancy dress party held aboard a plane. But when he and the six other guests discover that they were each invited by a different host, they check the cockpit and find it empty, the plane instead operating on remote control. They soon land on a deserted, uncharted island, and are then told by their mysterious host that one of them is a trained ‘super-killer’; as the partygoers are murdered one by one, Steed must find out who the killer is, before he becomes the next victim…
