The Zoo Gang: The Counterfeit Trap (S1EP4 ITV Fri 26 Apr 1974, with Peter Cushing)



zoo gang

In The Counterfeit Trap Alec finds himself accused of double murder when the gang attempt to get back some smuggled gold using conterfeit money. Not only that but Stephen finds himself taken prisoner by the bad guys. This time the Zoo Gang might have bitten off more than they can chew.

Another very strong supporting cast, not only Peter Cushing and Philip Madoc but also a long haired Jacqueline Pearce (playing Cushing’s new young wife).
