Danger Man - The Key television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. There is victory but no winners when Drake is sent to Vienna to investigate reporter Harry Logan (Robert Flemyng) who is the lead suspect in a series of leaks of classified information smuggled out of the country. Despite evidence of the man’s guilt, Drake’s gut won’t let him believe the reporter is the leak. The truth is more complicated, as the Logan will learn for himself when his wife (Monique Ahrens) is implicated in the plot.

“The Key” is a sobering episode. Drake’s instincts prove true about the reporter who was innocent of any wrongdoing (other than attempting at one point to take the fall for his wife). On discovering his wife’s involvement the episode offers a plausible reason for Maria being forced to share the secrets to a foreign spy (Charles Gray). However, that is far from the true story. The exposure of her involvement may absolve Logan of any crime but it also breaks the reporter’s heart.
