This was easily our son’s favorite of the four half-hour Danger Man installments that I picked. It starts with a murder, and then Drake tails a suspected counterfeiter by train and has an adventure in the Alps. There’s a tense scene in a cable car where it looks like somebody’s going to get thrown to their death, and then a cat-and-mouse game with Drake hiding from a gang of thugs in a hotel.
Among the thugs: Roger Delgado and Walter Gotell, so you know I was going to pick this one. Hermione Baddeley has a small role as well. It’s a really good half-hour of adventure TV, and I think I’m going to add this set to my afternoon rotation because this is clearly an even better show than I had heard. I’ve seen a few of the hour-long ones, which we’ll start Tuesday night, but these were the first of the punchy thirty-minute versions that I’ve seen and I liked all four a lot.
