EPISODE DETAILS:
‘Such Men Are Dangerous’ was the 16th episode in the second series to be filmed at MGM Borehamwood studios between Thursday 22nd October and Thursday 5th November 1964. A few location shots were used such as Haberdashers’ Aske’s School and Wormwood Scrubs prison in London; these can be seen on my On Location page.

Edwin Boden is due to be released from prison and has been offered a job on the outside, however he is dubious as it seems too good to be true and wanting to go straight he informs the authorities. Drake swaps places with Boden and takes the job to find he’s enrolled in a terrorist training camp run by The General.

Ralph Smart’s second fifty-minute script was originally entitled ‘The Method’, but was changed after filming to ‘Such Men Are Dangerous’ a line spoken by the General when describing the Government.
