An abandoned war-time sea installation over three miles from shore has been taken over under maritime law by a man who now uses it to run a pirate radio station. Being outside the three-mile limit prevents the authorities from shutting the station down or prosecuting for unlicensed broadcasting. However, the pirate radio station is only a front for other, more nefarious activities. Written by Anonymous

The location for this episode makes it so interesting.
1 May 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Not So Jolly Roger" is an odd film in that it's based on an off-shore base that was created during WWII by the Brits. Some folks are using it as a pirate radio station, but apparently it's not just to slip it into the UK without licensing worries but because someone is using it to broadcast secrets to nearby enemy subs. Unfortunately, the last agent working there was caught and killed--so Drake has to be really convincing when he gets a job there as a disc jockey.

The best thing going for this one is the unusual locale as well as the interesting plot. But it also helps that Drake meets a woman I love. She's not only pretty but she's got spunk and is one tough lady! Overall, quite enjoyable and one of the better episodes.
