Avengers Cast

King Tenuphon is visiting London in order to sign an oil deal. Steed is assigned to protect him, as there has already one attempt on the King's life aboard his plane bound for London. Meanwhile, Major Harrington, a paid assassin rents the flat across from the hotel where the King is staying. Steed double-checks the area, but the landlady tells him nothing as her husband is under threat of death. A low-flying helicopter distracts the king’s attention, Steed immediately suspects foul play; he hurls himself at Tenuphon, and the Major instead kills Prince Serrakit, the king’s advisor. Tenuphon’s bodyguard Tuke is then able to shoot the Major.
