Spy gadget update

No Marks for Servility is my hands down favorite. There is a truly wonderful review of this episode at culturecourt.com/F/TV/Danger_Man.htm. So I will say nothing more except to skip right to the spy gadgets.

I've been counting the various spyware devices that John Drake utilized as I go through both the 1960-61 1/2 hour series as well as the 1964-66 1 hour series.

The earlier series brought us two full on spy gadgets; A camera hidden in a whiskey flask (The Blue Veil), and a cigarette lighter doubling as a Radio receiver (The Brothers).

In this issue Drake uses an audio/video setup housed in an inconspicuous wine barrel. The equipment monitors various rooms in the house the main bad guy is residing in. Although I've not listed simple cameras placed in areas such as air vents as true spy gadgets, I am including this wine barrel rig, working on the premise that a true spy gadget serves two purposes; its apparent use (such as lighting a cigarette, and its surreptitious use.

With regards to the second series, leading up to this episode, No Marks for Servility, we have seen an electric shaver do double duty as a radio transmitter (Colony 3), and a camera hidden inside an alarm clock (Battle of the cameras).. again, the latter device fits the dual purpose motif.
