The 39 Steps- Masterpiece Theater
Last night's Masterpiece Theater, The 39 Steps was very intriguing. A former intelligence agent, Richard Hannay is accoused in London in his flat and given a coded notebook. The spy is then shot by German agents. Hannay is blamed for the shooting and gets away. He is persued by the police, thus begins the cloak and dagger intrigue that proceeds the outbreak of World War 1. He then proceeds to Scotland where a German spy ring is planning to render Britain defenseless against the invasion. Along the way he is joined by Victoria Sinclair, a combative suffragette. Dangers surround them everywhere as they try to save Britain.None as great as what waits for them at the bottom of the 39 steps.
