I loved the guest star in this final episode of "Danger Man"
The guest villain in this final episode of "Danger Man" is Khano, played by William Marshall. While Marshall is best known for playing the lead in the Blacula films, I always thought he was a marvelous actor--with a gorgeous voice and wonderful bearing that made it a joy watching him. So, at the outset, I was thrilled as "Deadline".
In Victoria, Africa, there have been riots and bloodshed and Drake (Patrick McGoohan) and his bosses think its due to a local strong-man, Khano. Drake travels there and soon sees that Khano is intent on buying weapons and so Drake poses as an arms dealer. However, he really wants to make contact with Khano's wife. His goal is to show her the horrors attributable to Khano and get her out of the country so that she can tell others about this. Can Drake do this and survive--after all, it IS the last episode!
Up until the ending, I liked this episode. However, the ending was great--making this a very good episode and a good way to end the series.
