Traitor in Zebra
30 June 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Steed poses as a naval psychiatrist and Cathy Gayle as a scientist working on a naval tracking system.

The trouble is every time there are important tests; the unnamed enemy can jam it.

Sub-Lieutenant Michael Crane is under arrest for leaking the information.

Mrs Gayle and Steed meet in the local village pub. Also there are other naval officers and assorted members of the public.

When the next test takes place, it also gets jammed. This indicates Crane is innocent; after all he has been in custody the whole time. The fact that other people end up being dead should certainly point to his innocence.

The villains go through some elaborate ways to communicate with each other when they also seem to be hanging around the same pub.

This is not really a good episode, I thought it was let down by Mrs Gayle correcting Steed on wearing his officer's hat in the pub. I assumed Steed would had seen active service and would already know about such matters.
