Danger Man - Bury the Dead television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man.The suspicious death of an agent in a car accident sends John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) to Sicily where he matches wits with a wealthy business owner (Dermot Walsh) using his canning business to smuggle guns. With the help of the victim’s girlfriend (Beverly Garland), while avoiding the tactics of a corrupt police officer (Paul Stassino) and the businessman’s thugs looking for any excuse to lock Drake away until the next shipment is underway, Drake is able to discover the truth including what really happened to his old friend.

The episode’s most memorable moment occur when our villains attempt to take our protagonist out of play, first by attempting to blame a car accident on the former and later going to great lengths to attempt to pull Drake into a bar fight. Only further infuriating his adversaries by finding ways to manuever out of their traps, eventually Drake is able to find the proof needed… even if that does mean facing a harsh reality about the friend whose murder he came to solve.
