After his cover is blown in an operation, Drake heads for "sunny Spain" to hide out for a while. With an apparent enemy arriving and Drake's friend telling the hotelier he intends to shoot Drake, it becomes a puzzle as to who can be trusted and who is really up to what. One of the lighter-hearted episodes yet still intriguing. Written by
The first 1/3 or so of the episodes had Drake answering to a superior named Hobbs. Later, this character was dropped and Drake was shown working for a number of different individuals. One episode, "The Man with the Foot," saw Drake taking orders from an M-like character played by 'Bernard Lee', who played M in the Bond films. See more »
Apart from showing Bernard Lee as Drake's boss, there isn't a lot to make this episode stand out. Sure, unlike the others they play a lot of this for laughs but regardless it's a relatively weak episode of "Secret Agent".
When the show begins, Drake's cover is blown and he decides to head to Spain for a rest. Unfortunately it's winter and pretty miserable. Additionally, a bumbling agent (too bumbling if you ask me) decides that Drake is up to no good and decides to investigate. It all ends with a ridiculous car chase, as a Mini Cooper forces a much larger Mercedes off the road and the two men soon engage in a silly fight on the ice. A bit of a letdown, that's for sure.
