Did You Know?


The Sherlock Holmes disguise in the boxing match and the funfair was not in the original script. It was changed to allow Frank Maher, Patrick McGoohan's stunt double, to play No 6 during McGoohan's absence from filming. See more »


When No. 6 fires the Bren at the speaker on the wall, no bullet holes appear before the small puff of smoke indicates that the speaker is hit. At that range, the dozen or so .303 rounds he fired at it would have completely destroyed it. See more »

Number six(Patrick McGoohan) is reading a children's story as this episode begins, which casts him in the familiar role of a secret agent sent to stop the evil plans of a mad scientist called Doctor Schnipps(played by Kenneth Griffith) who plots to fire a rocket at London, aided by his beautiful but deadly daughter called death(played by Justine Lord) who has laid many bombs, poisons, and booby-traps for him, which he successfully evades, as he closes in on them both in order to complete his mission. Enjoyable spoof episode with a neat ending is pretty lightweight stuff overall, but an amusing breather before the serious minded two-part series finale.
