Large amounts of counterfeit currency have been arriving in Switzerland from all over the world. Drake has been assigned to follow a lead suspect, Gunther Klaus, and pretends to show interest in his daughter in order to throw him off the track. However, Klaus soon begins to suspect that Drake is more than a common American tourist. Written by
John Drake's Mission: Find the source of millions of dollars in counterfeit currency and put a stop to it.
Under the Lake is easily one of the absolute best of the 30 minute Danger Man episodes. It features a very tight script without any wasted scenes. There's probably not a throwaway moment in the whole thing. The action is plentiful giving Drake a real chance to show his abilities. The finale is as tense as any I've seen. It's a very well put together episode. The acting is first rate. In addition to the steady McGoohan, Christopher Rhodes, Moira Redmond, and Roger Delgado are highlights for me. This is Redmond's second appearance in a Danger Man episode and I wish she could have been in more.
When I finish going through these 30 minute episodes, I think I'll put together a list of my five or ten favorite, I'm sure Under the Lake will be on that list. A 9/10 from me.
