Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A campy hark back to the "penny dreadful" school of literature, the British adventure series Virgin of the Secret Service was set in India and the Middle East during the early 1900s. The series' 13 hour-long episodes chronicled the exploits of dauntless Captain Robert Virgin (Clinton Greyn) of the British Secret Service. Aided by his valet Doublett (John Cater) and the fearless Mrs. Cortez (Veronica Strong), Captain Virgin held the line against the formidable villainy of the caddish, scoundrelly Karl Von Brauner (Alexander Dore) and Klaus Striebeck (Peter Swannick). Created by Ted Willis, Virgin of the Secret Service first swashed and buckled its way into British television on March 28, 1968.
