Storyline

After nearly thirty years in southern Africa, Richard Hannay has achieved recognition as an officer in military intelligence, a mining engineer and a successful prospector. Now he is returning to Britain to seek a bride, a home and a quiet life. But Europe is a couldron of political intrigue and, amongst the old Empires, a new power is rapidly making its way-a power that resents Britain's mastery of the waves: Imperial Germany. Represented in London by the cunning and ruthless Count Von Schwabing, Germany is intent on causing trouble however and wherever she can-and Richard Hannay attracts trouble as a magnet attracts iron-filings.

The Fellowship of the Black Stone
8 January 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Robert Powell played Richard Hannay in the 1978 movie of The 39 Steps.

Hannay was the television series inspired by the movie and Powell returned as Hannay.

In the first episode. Hannay who left Scotland as a child, returns back home after almost 30 years in southern Africa. Hannay is an adventurer of sorts. A prospector, engineer and involved with British military intelligence.

As soon as Hannay lands in London, he goes to deliver a package an is abducted and interrogated. When he escapes he is soon wanted for murder.

Hannay stumbles on a plan by Imperial Germany to shatter the peace, start a war and blame it on the Russians.

The series looked cheap being shot on video and the sets do not look great. The opening scenes on the boat look bad.

It takes time to get going, some of the acting is hammy. I thought the action scenes were not well edited. When Hannay is chased by someone on a rowing boat the man got on shore awfully fast.

The first episode upped its pace, but it very much looked like a creaky adventure drama.
