A British husband and wife couple, who are atomic scientists, disappear on their English holiday to the coast. The suspicion is that they have been kidnapped and sent to Haiti and Drake is sent to investigate. They had befriended a French couple, who have also disappeared. When a body of another man is washed up in Haiti, Drake finds that there have been other deaths, which all seem to be connected to a wealthy Haitian. When the dead man turns out to be a Russian atomic scientist, Drake works with a Soviet agent to find out what is happening. Written by
This is the 1st time Patrick McGoohan & Earl Cameron would co-star, but, after the conclusion of Danger Man, Earl Cameron would once again co-star with Mr. McGoohan, but, not on such amiable terms. Mr. Cameron would portray the Supervisor (in only one episode) of the Village's security apparatus, in the iconic TV series - and many believe a continuation of Danger Man - The Prisoner. Mr. Cameron's appearance in The Prisoner marks several 'firsts;' his appearance is the ONLY time a black actor appeared in the series, and the only time a black actor played a role of N°6's adversaries, as well as being in a position of power (nefarious power, as it were).

The Enemy of Your Enemy... is the Basis For This Episode
Surprisingly, as I post this review in March of 2015 there are no existing reviews for this episode. It's a decent Danger Man entrée though. As so often happens with this 1960's series, the subject matter is topical even today.
In this installment there is a group of Africans who feel they need to get their hands on 'the bomb'. Their logic is that since so many other countries have it, Africa will end up getting blackmailed into surrendering their country's resources under threat (hmmm). As you will see, the splinter group has a unique way of pursuing their desire to obtain the coveted weapon.
In this installment John Drake comes up against an agent for the 'opposition' as he so often terms the folks on the other side of the fence. But in this instance the two find they have a common enemy and work together effectively to put that enemy right out of business.
Meanwhile in the spy gadget department Drake finds a use for his cigarette lighter that doubles as a camera. It's appearance is very brief and doesn't get the closeups the device is normally subject to.
Guest star wise, there are several reliable actors returning from past Danger Man shows. See how many you can spot.
