Two British Agents team up to stop Sir August de Wynter from destroying the world with a weather-changing machine.
The moves in the chess match between Emma Peel and John Steed are the same as in the match between Roy Batty and Tyrell in Blade Runner (1982). Another reference to that movie is during the fight between Sir August De Wynter and John Steed, when Sir August says "Time to die". The same line Roy Batty says to Rick Deckard during their fight in Blade Runner (1982).
Sir August de Winter:
You will buy your weather from me! And by God you'll pay for it.
Snowflakes on hands and face should melt.
