- "You'll have to work fast, before the police get here..."
Tidman is an agent with the British Security Service, and is partnered with fellow agent Jimmy Bondson.
A Search Too LateEdit
Somewhere off the French Riviera, MI.5 agents Tidman and Bondson arrive at Captain Blacker's Yacht - just as it explodes! Tidman help his partner prep for diving on the wrecked vessel; and Bondson describes to him, by radio, what he finds. "Poor chap," on hearing their fellow agent is dead, "no one could have survived that explosion."
"There's more to it," Bondson adds - Blacker was murdered!
And, worse still: someone has taken the plans of a Nuclear device that were hidden inside a torch battery...
- Tidman's puppet appears in several more episodes: as Collins, in Danger At Ocean Deep, as Percy's Friend, in The Duchess Assignment; as a security guard at Parola Sands Raceway, in Move - And You're Dead; and as a Paradise Peaks Hotel guest, in The Cham-Cham.
