Baravian President Pablo Gomez and his wife Maria visit London. Their government suspects Baravian exiles may be plotting against them, and enlists John Drake to protect the couple. Drake soon gets word of a bomb that has been planted to go off. Most likely, the weapon is targeting the visiting dignitaries. Drake has their residence checked thoroughly and questions every exile about the plot, but when nothing turns up, not even the Gomez's are above suspicion. Written by
Drake has a VERY unusual assignment. Instead of being asked by a NATO power to do some mission, he's approached by an old enemy--an enemy agent from Baravia. It seems that despite working on different sides, this guy trusts Drake to do the right thing---and the right thing includes protecting the a dictator while he and his wife visit London. After all, it would NOT help relations between the nations if a killing happens in the UK. Drake accepts and soon meets with the dictator's wife to discuss the threat--a threat that turns out to be very real. Who is behind all this and how, well, that's something you're going to need to find out on your own.
All in all, this is a very taut and well written episode. Occasionally shows went too quickly, though the pacing here was just fine. And, as usual, Patrick McGoohan is great as the ever-competent and clever 'fixer'.
