Barbara Shelley returns
30 September 2014 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

John Drake's Mission: Drake sets off for the mountains of Kashmir to catch an agent passing sensitive information on to a foreign (Chinese, I presume) government.

Another below average episode, The Traitor succeeds in being a confusing mess. Why did the agent just give himself up? Why did Drake spend so much time with the worthless contact in India? Why did Drake spend so much time with the garage owner? Why do people who live "at the top of the world" who have had only three or four visitors in years feel it necessary to "dress" for dinner? When Drake discovers his cover has been blown, why is he so casual about the Chinese government ordering his death? The answer to all these question - poor writing. The Traitor is easily the worst written episode of the series I've seen so far.

The major highlight for me was the return of Barbara Shelley to Danger Man. From the moment she walks on screen, she steals every scene she's in. She has poise, presence, and beauty - she's just fantastic.

As much as I hate to do this, I'm rating The Prisoner a 5/10.
