Steed goes out of his mind - Emma is beside herself
Steed and Mrs. Peel investigate a bizarre death involving an agent and some gigantic stilts; but the clues that lead Steed to the stilt manufacturer have been set up by two enemy agents named Basil and Lola. They knock Steed out, and place his unconscious body inside a mind-swapping machine invented by Doctor Krelmar. After Steed’s body is swapped with Basil’s, ‘Steed’ then lures Mrs. Peel to the same location, and she too is overpowered, and swaps minds with Lola. Leaving the real Steed and Mrs. Peel tied up, Basil and Lola use their perfect disguises to begin the destruction of the ‘floral network’ of agents from the inside...
