Storyline

Number Six is now back in rural England as Agent X,investigating the death of Colonel Hawke-English who was on the trail of Scnipps,a mad scientist threatening to point a rocket at London to destroy it. Agent X is literally stalked by Death, alias Sonia,the daughter of Schnipps,who lures him to a building full of deadly booby traps,which he manages to avoid. He eventually traces her to a light-house,which is actually the rocket itself,and has to thwart her and her father to save the capital. Written by don @ minifie-1

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.
