The Enemy of Your Enemy... is the Basis For This Episode
28 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
