Avengers Cast

Steed and Tara attempt to capture a quadruple-agent called Merlin, but when the tricky agent tries to elude capture by releasing a new sleeping gas on them, he too is sent to sleep. Twenty-four hours later, the trio awake, only to find the town deserted and under martial law. But while the outside world thinks that the army is there to defuse an old atom bomb found buried in an embassy building, the fake military men are in fact installing a new device as part of a plan to blow up London…
