"When this series made its debut in the late 50's it was an instant hit with TV audiences in both the UK and in America. As part of a publicity campaign, the name of the actor who played Dr. Peter Brady was Tim Turner (replete with bandages), but was not revealed until 1965 to keep the audiences guessing. The show boasts of some really fabulous special effects for the day; for example, a cigarette that lights and smokes itself and wine drunk from a glass by an "invisible" drinker. Many of the episodes refect the political climate of the Cold War; Peter Brady often is called to thwart the evil designs of foreign spies or assist a friend of a friend who is being blackmailed keeping with a theme similar to "The Saint." A complete set of all the episodes are available thru AmazonUK, but this is a good starter set for those who like vintage British sci-fi television with a twist. The astute observer will notice many fine UK actors in guest spots on this series who would later appear on many other well known ITC programs such as "Danger Man," "Secret Agent," and "The Prisoner.""
