When a professor is murdered in broad daylight, secret agent John Drake is enlisted to track down the assassin. He heads for a remote hunting lodge just over the Austrian border, where the suspect, Hans Vogeler, is known to visit. Things get complicated when he unwittingly finds himself handcuffed to a woman. He suspects her of being an enemy agent, but he has no choice but to bring her along while he stakes out the lodge. And though he had wished to take Vogeler alive, this unexpected restriction may require him to kill the assassin. Written by Twenty Penguins

Sort of like "Danger Man" meets "The Defiant Ones".
26 October 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Time to Kill" is a decent episode of "Danger Man", but it also helps to prove once again that the series was much better off when it switched from a half hour to hour long time slot. In so many of these early 30 minute shows, the plots seem very, very rushed.

The show begins with a noted professor being murdered by an assassin (Hans Vogeler) with a high-powered rifle. While Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is loathe to accept such an assignment since he detests the idea of liquidating someone, he agrees since Vogeler's actions violated the unwritten rules of spies during the Cold War--you don't murder harmless defectors. Still, he vows to bring the man back instead of killing him if at all possible.

Drake uses a fake identity to enter Vogeler's country (incidentally, it appears to be Hungary) and is able to do so with little difficulty. However, along the way he meets a Swedish woman--one who naturally arouses his suspicions. Later, they meet up again and he has even more reasons to suspect she isn't who she says she is. However, things get pretty strange when, though odd circumstances, they become handcuffed to each other--much like Tony Curtis and Sidney Poitier in "The Defiant Ones". What's next? See the show.

Generally, this is quite good. The only part that annoyed me was the voice-over at the end--it seemed like a way to wrap up several minutes of loose ends in about 10 seconds! As I said, it was a bit rushed.
