EPISODE DETAILS:
Whatever happened to George Foster was the 17th episode in the second series, and the third fifty-minute script written by David Stone.

Drake has discovered that millionaire businessman Lord Ammanford is using his money and power to cause riots in a new Latin-American republic for his own ends. Drake confronts Ammanford but is warned off, although Drake is not deterred. Drake soon learns that Ammanford has considerable power and is beaten up and arrested but escapes and continues to dig the dirt until he learns that Ammanford is a bigamist.

Adrienne Corri makes her second Danger Man appearance as Pauline and James Bond regular Bernard Lee stars in the first of his two episodes, the other being ‘The Man with the Foot’ in series three. We are also introduced to Patsy Smart, the sister of Ralph Smart the show’s creator and executive producer, who will later appear in two episodes of the Prisoner.

Filmed at MGM Borehamwood studios between Friday 5th and Friday 20th November 1964 and included some location shots in the Borehamwood and Shenley area.
