What an unusual ending....
14 November 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The British government thinks that a woman named Vanessa has been involved in espionage so they want John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) to bring her back to the UK. However, she's in another country and under the protection of some folks who live in a villa. So, it's up to Drake to insinuate themselves in the home. However, when enemy agents show up and want Vanessa, things get a difficult. It also gets difficult because his assistant (Donald Pleasence) is a bit bloodthirsty! This is a unique episode in many ways but the biggest one is the ending. I could say more but I suggest you see this one yourself to see what I mean. Worth seeing and interesting.

By the way, you could sometimes tell that episodes were rushed, as the 30 minute time slot seemed very short for such a show. Watch when Drake enters the villa--I have never heard people talk so fast in all my life when they first meet! Obviously they were pressed for time and the director must have pushed them to speed it up.
