I didn't mention Mrs Emma Peel ! (Purdey)
Tut-tut ! You never do ! (Gambit)
She and Steed came up against them before !
Haven't seen 'Return of the Cybernauts' but obviously Purdey had done her research 8) Do I detect Purdey is quite jealous of Emma but tries to conceal it with her response of a snoot look at Gambit and a flick of her boot at her ballet barre as if to say I'd be well able for Emma :wink:

This one was always my favourite episode for many reasons. Peter Cushing being the main one and I like the Cybernauts! Strange that there's only one considering the title and Aimi McDonald was delicious too!

Was channel hopping recently and The Curse of the Mummys Tomb (1964) was on Talking Pictures TV. This strongly reminded me of The Return of the Cybernauts. When the mummy enters the library it really resembles it, even to the design of the room.

I'm sure that was deliberate, look at High Noon vs Noon Doomsday, some of it is shot for shot. Never, Never Say Die also has some shots that mimic scenes from Frankenstein movies.
Mrs Peel, you're needed!
