When Rawson is suspected of selling secrets, Drake's boss wants to bring him in. Drake will bring anyone in but he has to be sure, he then befriends Rawson. Drake posing as a nervous teacher opens up dialogue in a pub when Rawson takes pity as his classical vinyl records are destroyed by some rowdy youths(amongst them Wendy Richards). With their mutual love of music established Drake moves closer into Rawsons circle. There are some great location shots of Fulham Football Club as the two 'friends' watch a match although Drake is looking for Rawson's contacts. This episode is a great example of Mcgoohans acting range, as he develops a new persona every week. Sixties espionage does not get better than Danger Man.
