Agent West is sent to an Island to recover a priceless diamond--and also stop a criminal mastermind named Calender. As Agent Gordon doesnt appear, West's partner is British detective Sir Nigel Scott...but things aren't always what they seem...in fact at the end Nigel Scot is exposed as "Calender"; before he can kill West, Scot/Calender is knocked over a cliff to his doom..by a gigantic hound!
Episode cast Edit
The scene of the boat going to the Island is the same footage of the SS Minnow in the 2nd and 3rd seasons of the comedy series Gilligan's Island.
The theme of a phantom dog haunting a heir is borrowed from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's story The Hound of the Baskervilles.
Bloopers and continuity errors Edit
The caretaker of the Island is killed by Calender's thugs in the beginning teaser-in fact almost practically under the eyes of Agent West as he steps ashore...yet in the dinner scene later it is remarked that the caretaker had "disappeared" months before.
