Avengers Cast

One of Doctor Keel’s patients, Faith Braintree, calls him in a panic - her husband, an eminent scientist working on a top secret project, has disappeared. Keel decides to help, but is mistaken for the woman's husband, and kidnapped. He manages to escape, and informs Steed, who convinces him to impersonate the scientist. Once again Keel is kidnapped, but when he attempts to escape again, he is shot in the chest and taken to a hospital for minor surgery. When the anaesthetist, an accomplice of the kidnappers, tries to kill Keel, Steed arrives just in time to save Keel's life. The scientist then reappears, apparently suffering from temporary amnesia caused by overworking.
