The Avengers: The Tunnel of Fear (S1EP20 ITV 5 Aug 1961, Anthony Bate)



The Tunnel of Fear: Top-secret information is finding its way into the wrong hands, and the source seems to be a south coast fairground. Steed succeeds in getting hypnotised and winds up in the ghost-train tunnel. With frightening results, of course.

Murray Hayne was down to play Harry Black but was replaced at late notice by Anthony Bate. The TV Times listed Hayne in the role and the mistake has also been used elsewhere.
