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

Did You Know?


Most of the cricket match was filmed in Eltisley in Cambridgeshire, but No 6 can only be seen in long shot, or from behind. The close ups were filmed in a field behind MGM studios weeks later. See more »


When the timer is counting down until the rocket launches, it decrements by seconds, but after we see 152 seconds, the next is 141 seconds. See more »

A Break from the Conventional Dramatic
22 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a bit disappointed because as the series came to an end, it would seem one would deal with a more conventional setting. Number Six substitutes for a cricket batter who was blown up by a ball/bomb. He is about to receive the same fate but catches the ball, throws it in the air, and watches it explode. He is in a sort of gauntlet run, pursued by a girl named Death. She tries every manner of tortuous device, but he one-ups her at every turn. She finally assumes he is dead and returns to her Napoleon complex father. Number Six is at their house and manages to make life miserable for them. Other than the usual smokescreen of deception where anything goes and there seems to be enough money to accomplish it, it makes no sense until the last couple minutes, and even then, it's superfluous.
