Wonder Woman investigates the disappearance of an intelligence
plane over the Bermuda Triangle. But defeating the man responsible
could lead to nuclear tests that would threaten Diana's own
a kid, I always used to wonder why we never saw Wonder Woman
(Lynda Carter) changing back into her alter ego, Diana Prince.
Does she twirl around again, perhaps in the opposite direction?
For a moment during this episode, Bermuda Triangle Crisis,
I thought I was about to witness such an event, but instead
she changes into yet another outfit - her full-body diving
costume, which makes its first appearance in the series.
to compensate for the fact that the diving suit covers up
her thighs for part of this instalment, Diana's trousers get
ripped during an earlier scene, so she ends up chopping off
the legs to make a very skimpy pair of shorts!
is an extremely lively episode, full of action and glossy-looking
location work, and with a larger than usual role for Normann
Burton (who played Felix Leiter in Diamonds Are Forever)
as Joe Atkinson. Wonder Woman's dilemma regarding the threat
to Paradise Island adds an extra dimension to the plot.
Steve Trevor is kidnapped by terrorists. The same group
has also set its sights on other members of the Inter Agency
Defense Command, including Diana Prince...
Steve (Lyle Waggoner) out of action during most of the episode
Knockout, Diana is assisted by an ex-marine taxi driver
called Pete, an appealing stand-in role fulfilled by Knots
Landing's Ted Shackelford.
Doctor Who fans might be interested to know that this
instalment also features Tom Baker. However, this particular
Tom Baker is just the name of an IADC agent played by Burr
DeBenning. If anything, he looks more like John Levene's Sergeant
Benton than the Fourth Doctor.
with the previous episode, events are wrapped up rather summarily
- and cheaply - by means of a discussion after the fact back
at IADC headquarters, which makes for a rather disappointing
ending on this occasion.
Diana and Steve go undercover to avoid a diplomatic incident
when a notorious thief attempts to steal the crown jewels
of a visiting queen...
Queen and the Thief very nearly gives us a tale of two
Leiters. It features not only Normann Burton as Joe, but also
guest-stars David Hedison - who played Felix in Live and
Let Die and Licence to Kill - in the role of the
charming but devilishly cunning thief Evan Robley. (Come to
think of it, Lyle Waggoner might not have made a bad Felix
Leiter himself.) With Steve once again put out of action,
this instalment provides ample opportunity for engaging banter
between Diana/Wonder Woman and Robley.
This episode also holds interest for Star Trek fans,
since it features John Colicos (alias the Klingon Kor) as
As with the previous volume, the extras comprise a photo gallery
and a couple of text features - The Many Faces of Wonder
Woman and The History of Wonder Woman. The latter
actually deals with the character's Silver Age comic book
biography, rather than that of the TV series, so don't get
too confused when it claims that Diana married Steve in the
its slightly shorter running time, this is a better collection
of episodes than Volume 1.
