Big Ben Strikes Again is the third episode of British television series Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons.


In the centre of London, a double police-escorted transporter, carrying a nuclear explosive device built for civilian use, seemingly goes out of control, shaking off its motor guards and its driver regaining consciousness in a back alley. The transporter, now in the remote-controlled possession of the Mysterons, has been hidden in an under construction car park. Captains Scarlet and Blue are assigned to investigate the driver's mysterious discovery, that the famous Big Ben clock struck 13 times, which may be a clue to finding the transporter before it destroys the whole of Central London.
