Charles Glover has defected to China and M9 wants him back. Drake is ordered to try and get him. He follows Glover's wife, Paula, to Greece as he suspects she will try to make contact with him. Drake befriends her as he follows her to a island close to the Albanian border. It is there that they encounter an Albanian agent, Nicos, who tries to kill Drake. Drake reveals himself to Paula and convinces her to try and get her husband to return to England, particularly as she doesn't want to live in China. Nicos doesn't give up and does his best to get them over to Albania. Drake eventually succeeds but the result leaves him angry. Written by jem

Spy gadget #9
27 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode brings us a similar pairing of bugging device and receiver as seen in "Such Men Are Dangerous" (the special "Order" of folks who assassinated world leaders at will).

The bug John Drake plants in a woman's suitcase is a completely different shape however; it's larger (more battery capacity?) and sort of rectangularish. The radio, although it is similar in dimension to the transceiver used in the aforementioned episode, has a different face and is just a receiver. It does not seem to broadcast, whereas the other radio did (it needed to so that Drake could call in the Calvary!).

So the bug in this episode is a unique enough pairing to warrant calling this the 9th spy gadget seen in the Danger Man / Secret Agent saga.
