In this installment of "Danger Man", Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is called in to investigate a leak at the embassy in Vienna. Secret documents keep popping up and there seems to be only one person who could be responsible. However, Drake likes the man and thinks the answer isn't so simple--and he thinks someone else is smuggling out the documents.
To me, this episode is a bit weak--especially at the end. It seems that perhaps the folks who made this wanted you to feel sorry for the traitor. At the very least, I was surprised that Drake even bothered saving them. Also when Drake first appears, he's badly superimposed into the scene--a problem that pops up now and again on this show. Considering it's supposed to take place all around the world and had a limited budget, they had to cut corners--hence the superimpositions.
