The final story finds the Counter-Measures team undercover at a Monte Carlo casino trying to prevent the sale of a dangerous piece of technology to Lady Suzanne Clare (Carolyn Seymour) who both owns the casino and is an international arms dealer.

This one is a very fun story with quite a few surprises. Writer John Dorney uses a nice clever bit of misdirection to help along the way. The character of Lady Suzanne Claire is one of the best villains Counter-Measures have faced off against and the role is played very adeptly by Carolyn Seymour.

Overall, easily the best episode of the box set.

A fun visit to Monte Carlo where the team tracks down a time traveller who cheats at Black Jack and an arms dealer who specialises in alien weapons.

This is not hard hitting, but it is fun to listen to. The plot has some clever intricacies, especially involving time travel with a bit of a bait and switch plot.
