Q.Q.F. File: The Strange Case of the Missing Corpse

No, it’s not a newly discovered Sherlock Holmes or Nancy Drew. It’s from the Merry Quips Department from the people who brought us The Avengers.

Filmed on the set of the episode Honey for the Prince, the last of the black & white Emma Peel episodes, it was a three-minute promotion for the American market announcing that the next season would be in color.

It was only seen as still photographs in books, until recently.

Steed in evening dress is particularly handsome, Mrs. Peel’s second entrance is stunning (this one’s for you, Tim), and banter abounds. Please note the music: you'll hear several of the series theme motifs, besides the classic opening. It's very well done. Good times all around.

Damn, that was good. I wouldn't mind showing up on Miss Peel's breakfast tray.

But tell me, what was Steed doing when she was demonstrating her fighting moves? It looked like an embarrassed boogie, the sort that uncles do at weddings...

Hey, no dissin' Steed in his own house (although your descript is very funny). At most I think we need to question his sanity, walking out with the cheesy blonde and leaving M.A. to her knitting . . . .

Fantastic. I've never seen this before. I'll take Mrs. Peel in that outfit anyday!
