Avengers Cast

Steed poses as a metallurgist in order to enter the dockyard where a nuclear submarine is being built. Here he encounters an old nemesis, Kolchek, who blackmails the yard foreman into planting a bomb to kill Steed, so that he can obtain the plans to the craft. When Steed catches Liz Fleming, the foreman's lover, searching his room, he is able to learn about the bomb. He manages to find it, throwing it into the water just before it explodes.
