EPISODE DETAILS:
The 7th episode of the second series to be made was written by Scotsman, Jan Read and filmed between the 15th and the 26th of June 1964. Filmed at MGM Borehamwood and included extensive location filming with the Danger Man unit once again returning to North Wales, with filming this time centred around Penmon Priory on the island of Anglesey.

Important papers on atomic power have gone missing, leaving only the empty briefcase which has upon it the fingerprints of a man who’s been dead for twenty years and so Drake is sent to the Island of Herta to investigate.

This episode has some similarities to two episodes from the first series:

‘The Gallows Tree’ in which Drake’s mission to find a communist traitor previously thought dead. ‘The Leak’, which dealt with the tension between the developments of atomic power in relation to a rural community.

This is another episode in which Drake shows compassion, feeling sorry for the man whom he has arrested.
