As part of a scheme to capture millionaire criminal mastermind J. P. Spagge, Steed and Cathy plan to steal £3 million in gold from an obscure vault. Steed sets Mrs. Gale up as an employee of Britain's largest gold repository, but when he tempts Spagge with the bait, Mrs. Gale is arrested, tried and convicted for the murder of the millionaire. However, Mrs. Gale learns that her ordeal was a hoax arranged by Spagge's minions as a test; she then arranges the perfect heist, but things do not go according to plan…
