When George Benson first appears as the French police chief, he uses his own Received Pronunciation, unmistakably British, very smooth speaking voice. About midway through the episode, however, his dialog begins to be dubbed by a gruff-voiced actor using a thick French accent. See more »
In this episode we are introduced to the fishing rod that doubles as a means of planting a listening device remotely. The bug is loaded into the hallow barrel of the rod and is propelled to its target with the benefit of a C02 cartridge.
C02 cartridge? Hey, are those things still used? Answer; yes. Who knew? People with C02 BB guns for one. Paintball types for another.
Anyway, this is one of the coolest gadgets yet in John Drake's reconnaissance arsenal. He is also sporting cigarette his lighter that takes pictures, a gadget seen once before in "Don't Nail Him Yet'.
This is a pretty good episode too. It's sporting Warren Mitchell in the guest cast, an actor appearing a record six times across the Danger Man / Secret Agent franchise.
