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

Trivia

The lighthouse sequences (Beachy Head) were filmed in November, which meant that the sea was quite rough at the time. One of the crew initially refused to leave the boat because of the weather. When the crew reached the lighthouse, they had to go by boat, but at the end of filming, the tide was out, so they were able to remove the equipment from the base of the lighthouse by the causeway. Most of the acting was done by stunt doubles, with studio mock-ups being used for the close ups of the actors outside the lighthouse. See more »

Goofs

In the close up of the laughing sailor machine at the fairground, the camera can be seen reflected on the left hand side in the glass at the end. 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.
