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?


The character "Bowler" is portrayed by an actor named John Drake. Not only is John Drake the name of Patrick McGoohan's character in Danger Man (1960), but is also possibly the true identity of No.6 in this show. McGoohan hired Drake because he was amused by the coincidence. 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.
