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

Series filler
13 October 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'The Girl Who Was Death' has one of the series' best episode titles . . . and is also the episode that feels least like The Prisoner. Fun fact: this was an episode of Secret Agent, repurposed for this series with a twist ending, and it shows. From beginning to (almost) end, McGoohan is playing a spy, fleeing some bizarre woman's elaborate death traps. But with its strange music and drug-induced editing, it feels like another show entirely.

It's long, it's irregular, and it's never been one of my favorites.

5/10
