Dick Barton Special Agent

Alternative Title: Dick Barton, Detective

Suave, debonair mega hero Dick Barton arrives in the tranquil little Cornish fishing village of Echo Bay, accompanied by his faithful sidekicks Snowey White and Jock Anderson. Barton’s presence soon disrupts the activities of the local smugglers, prompting their leader, the sinister Dr Caspar, to order several bungled attempts on his life. For Caspar is in reality a foreign agent with much more than mere smuggling on his mind – he has a dastardly plan to destroy the very fabric of Britain by polluting the nation’s entire water supply with a deadly poison. The country’s only hope of survival lays with – Dick Barton, Special Agent!
