In this episode of the spy series, Department S, Michael Gothard plays the principal villain, Weber.

His name is often mentioned, but he is not seen until halfway through the episode.
He and his girlfriend Danielle, played enigmatically by Edina Ronay, are on the trail of some money, which has been stashed by an accomplice, now dead, who has sent them an equally enigmatic clue.

They compete with the heroes of Department S to figure out what the clues mean, and unwittingly lead the Department to the loot, where they are arrested.

Like "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)" in which Michael was to appear in January 1970, “Department S” was filmed at Associated British Elstree Studios in Hertfordshire, England.

Both "Department S” and the episode of "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)", “When the Spirit Moves You", were produced by Monty Berman, and had Frank Maher as stunt co-ordinator.

It looks as if Michael is wearing the same long grey coat in the graveyard scene in "Les Fleurs du Mal" as he was to wear throughout the later part of "When the Spirit Moves You."
