EPISODE DETAILS:
The 2nd instalment of the new series, ‘Don’t Nail Him Yet’ was Philip Broadley’s first script for Danger Man. In this episode Rawson is known to be passing on secret information but instead of bringing Rawson in, Drake wants to identify Rawson’s contacts and takes on the guise of John Kiernan, a meek, lonely school teacher who befriends Rawson. In this episode the character of Drake displays intelligence, guile and a keen psychological insight into his adversaries, he really gets under the skin of Rawson who eventually cracks and leads Drake to the spy ring.

‘Don’t Nail Him Yet’ was filmed at MGM Borehamwood between the 23rd March and 3rd April 1964. Extensive location shots in London were used and can be found on my On Location page.
