Callan 204 The Little Bits and Pieces of Love (29 Jan 1969) sample frame from video
Callan is a reluctant assassin working for a shadowy department of the British government that is responsible for the dirty jobs, such as the elimination of undesirables by whatever means is necessary. Callan's life is bleak, his only friend a smelly small-time crook known as Lonely. Continually at odds with his superior, who is known as Colonel Hunter no matter which individual currently holds the job, he is a liability because he cares about the effects of his work, even though he knows how to do little else. The Section has often tried to eliminate him itself, but always ends up either needing his expert services too much or being out-maneuvered by him.
In this episode, Callan must use the wife of a rocket scientist as bait to lure the scientist to Britain.
Note: video quality on this episode is awful, but I haven't been able to find anything better.
