Dir: Don Sharp
Starring: Edward Woodward and Eric Porter
A former secret agent is called back to service to eliminate a government enemy
There is a car chase in this thriller, based on the TV series of the same name, which culminates in a 1964 Jaguar S-Type being caught on a level crossing and struck a glancing blow by a Class 33/0 (or possibly a Class 33/2) with three Mk1 coaches. It is not known where this scene was filmed but it was a single track line and was likely to be either the Dungeness or Grain freight-only branches. Incidentally, the original posters for the film (see one above) show the car being struck by what is clearly a Class 55 ‘Deltic’! Elsewhere in the film there is a shot of the frontage of Tower Hill Underground station and another shot of the entrance to Charing Cross Underground station before it was rebuilt and renamed Embankment.
