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 HAVE A GLASS OF WINE, Drake is on the trail of who is stealing British military secrets.
One lead leads to the another, which leads him to Burgundy, France, to a tangled situation - which is a case of mistaken and, hidden identities..
With some delightful performances from some regular DANGER MAN actors, notably, George Benson as the police chief, and the humorous/sinister portrayal Warren Mitchell brings to the French wine dealer, Lamaze.
HAVE A GLASS OF WINE, is one of the few episodes that shows it's 'lighter' side so clearly. And, enjoyably.
This episode was directed by Peter Maxwell - who'd worked on 3 other episodes , and, written by David Stone - who, at this same time, had written the adaptation for the classic film, Repulsion.
