Avengers Cast

Archaeologists working on a dig underneath a 12th century church are being killed off under mysterious circumstances. The vicar is an old friend of Steed's, and asks him to investigate the strange deaths, despite the fact that he himself believes them to be supernatural in nature. Steed and Tara search the dark tunnels and discover that the deaths are being caused by deadly box-like machines with the power to eat electricity. These machines were created a foreign scientist as part of a plan to kill everyone in the country - but two of the devices accidentally escaped. Steed has to disable the box in the tunnels, while Tara finds herself trapped in her flat at the mercy of the other…
