This was Robert's meatiest part so far on TV and he grabs it with both hands as the treacherous Peter von Brecht in this enjoyable episode.

Shaw, sporting a marvellous tan (even in black and white) gives a loud, bombastic and energetic performance up against  Phillips as William Tell. 

It's an entertaining episode in which Shaw again gets to display his prowess with a sword and swagger about like only he can before he finally gets his comeuppance at the end. 

The episode also features Walter Gotell who Shaw would star with in From Russia with Love and Black Sunday.
