An early appearance by Robert Shaw and a future Dr. Who
21 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with Tony (Robert Shaw) having an auto accident and he's assumed to be dead. John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is sent to investigate--and it's assumed the gunrunner's Tony was investigating were behind his death. Along the way, he gets Tony's fiancée (Beverly Garland) to assist him. But the local police is made up of thugs bent on arresting Drake no matter what he does--and they try hard to provoke him. Ultimately, however, the joke's on them when they learn what's REALLY happening.

This is an interesting episode but it's more interesting for who's in the show. A very young Robert Shaw, Patrick Troughton (a future Dr. Who) and Beverly Garland (who has done a bazillion American TV shows including a regular spot on "My Three Sons"). Well worth seeing.
