Major Jonathan B. Clack..... Ken Pogue


Adderly had been a top operative of the department of International Security and Intelligence (I.S.I.) until he lost the use of his left hand while being tortured by enemy agents. His superior, Major Clack, in order to keep him on the payroll, assigned him to work for the department of "Miscellaneous Affairs", which usually got involved with minor and harmless diplomatic assignments. V.H.'s new boss was a petty bureaucrat named Greenspan who had no desire to rock the boat and was exasperated by Adderly's predilection for making real cases out of seemingly mundane - and often nonsensical - assignments. Greenspan's secretary, Mona, who had a bit of a crush on Adderly, was more than willing to bypass normal channels and procedures to help V.H., despite the complaints from her boss.

Adderly was produced in Toronto, Canada.
