Drake takes the place of a defector and goes behind the iron curtain to find out what is happening when foreign agents reach England. When he gets there he finds a replica English village, which is a school where foreign agents are taught to 'be British'. Actual British subjects, such as Drake, are employed to teach the agents the finer points of the British way of life. Drake sets out to disrupt their education and stop the supply of agents from reaching England. Written by

Geography is a matter of physical illusion; lines on a map, words on a signpost. It's this that gives a place it's identity. After all, you are where you recognise yourself to be. Mr. Donovan says that all countries are countries of the mind.

The idea for "Colony Three" is one that was so good that I am pretty sure it inspired a great episode of the American TV show "Mission: Impossible" ("The Carriers"). Regardless, I'd recommend you watch both of them, as both are among the best shows in each respective series.
The show begins with a man being detained by the British secret service. The detainee is bound for some place behind the Iron Curtain--but where and why is unknown. Since Drake bears a very strong similarity to the guy*, he goes on the mission instead. Once there, he finds that the Soviets have built an exact duplicate of a British town in which they train agents to blend in seamlessly once they are deployed there. Drake must learn who these agents are (so they can be arrested or tracked once they in the UK) as well as get out successfully. The first part is relatively easy once he constructs his own UNUSUAL camera. The second,...well, you'll need to see that for yourself.
An exciting plot, plenty of action and uniqueness all make this a great episode of "Secret Agent". Well worth seeing and if you don't like this one, you'll probably not enjoy the series.
