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

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 »

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.
