When ordered to kill the evil assassin Vogeler, Drake refuses and says that he will bring him in alive for trial instead. I thought that it was great that Drake refused to be an assassin and kill a man. It makes him seem much more noble and moral than the typical spy. However, the script seems to ignore this humanistic gesture and Drake does attempt to assassinate Vogeler. At no time does he attempt to arrest him and bring him to trial. The shortness of the format - 26 minute episodes, really doesn't allow for many complications. Everything happens rather quickly. If you are use to one hour/54 minute television spy shows, this is a little disconcerting. Having seen "Secret Agent," series first, John Drake's narration is also quite disconcerting at first.
