"I'm a simple thief. Killing has no place in my book of rules, especially when it applies to me."
19 September 2017 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

Mundy is tasked with retrieving a microdot that contains weapons' plans. The microdot is in the possession of a fashion photographer. Mundy goes undercover as a Texas oil millionaire to infiltrate this world of high fashion and beautiful models. What a tough job!

A Spot of Trouble might not be the best episode I've seen so far, but I still had a decent amount of fun with it. The problem I have with the episode is the theft Mundy pulls off. The intricate heist I so love is totally missing. Instead, it's a relatively simple breaking and entering job. The rest of the episode, however, is really good. The models actually look the part and William Campbell is exactly what I'd picture as a 60s photographer. The hired muscle, played by Cliff Osmond, comes across as especially menacing. Osmond would have made a great Bond heavy. He's big and believable in a fight. Finally, I didn't think I would care, but I enjoyed seeing Katherine Crawford in a return performance. Here, her contribution is vital to Mundy's success. Finally, I got a real kick out of the microdot's hiding place. What a clever idea!
