Storyline

When a professor is murdered in broad daylight, secret agent John Drake is enlisted to track down the assassin. He heads for a remote hunting lodge just over the Austrian border, where the suspect, Hans Vogeler, is known to visit. Things get complicated when he unwittingly finds himself handcuffed to a woman. He suspects her of being an enemy agent, but he has no choice but to bring her along while he stakes out the lodge. And though he had wished to take Vogeler alive, this unexpected restriction may require him to kill the assassin. Written by Twenty Penguins

A Spy With a Moral Code
23 July 2012 | by jayraskinSee all my reviews

When ordered to kill the evil assassin Vogeler, Drake refuses and says that he will bring him in alive for trial instead. I thought that it was great that Drake refused to be an assassin and kill a man. It makes him seem much more noble and moral than the typical spy. However, the script seems to ignore this humanistic gesture and Drake does attempt to assassinate Vogeler. At no time does he attempt to arrest him and bring him to trial. The shortness of the format - 26 minute episodes, really doesn't allow for many complications. Everything happens rather quickly. If you are use to one hour/54 minute television spy shows, this is a little disconcerting. Having seen "Secret Agent," series first, John Drake's narration is also quite disconcerting at first.
