Avengers Cast

After the frozen body of Gerhart Schnieder, a wanted Nazi criminal, is discovered amongst a beef shipment, Steed and Doctor Keel follow the trail to a Nazi revivalist group called Phoenix. After discovering that Doctor Kruezer, one of the members of the group, has perfected a method of cryogenics, Steed suggests that Keel joins the organisation. Here, Keel finds that the assumed dead man is very much alive; but Keel is soon discovered and lined up as the next deep-freeze experiment. Just in time, Steed arrives and rescues Keel, who comes away from the ordeal with nothing worse than a cold.
