Avengers Cast

When five of the six agents working in an espionage ‘pipeline’ on the Austro-Hungarian border are killed, Charles assigns Steed to investigate his old friend Hal Anderson, the sixth agent on the pipeline who vanished six weeks ago. Steed tracks Anderson to Scotland, but Anderson betrays him and presents Charles with indisputable evidence that it was Steed who was responsible for the murder of the agents. Charles sends Steed to an interrogation camp run by a man code-named ‘The Wringer’, where psychological torture and brainwashing are used to get to the truth. But Cathy has more faith in Steed than his superiors, and she discovers that they are guilty of gross negligence in the management of their own interrogation facility…
