The Secret Service is a 1960s British science-fiction television series created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson and filmed by their company, Century 21 Productions, for ITC Entertainment. It follows the exploits of Father Stanley Unwin, a puppet character voiced by the real-life comedian of the same name. Outwardly the parish priest of a rural English village, Unwin is secretly an agent for "BISHOP", a division of British Intelligence that counters foreign criminal and terrorist threats. Aided by fellow operative Matthew Harding, Unwin's missions often involve use of the "Minimiser", a device capable of shrinking people and objects to facilitate secret reconnaissance. In hostile situations, Unwin spouts a form of gibberish to distract the enemy.
