Danger Man - The Sanctuary television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. Things nearly turn out poorly for John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) when he assumes the identity of a recently paroled convict (Barry Keegan) whose new employer wants to put his old bomb-making skills to use. At first everything goes as planned and the spy is accepted in his role, but that only lasts for a day before the arrival of someone who knows the real bomb-maker putting Drake in jeopardy.

The second-half of the episode features a cat-and-mouse game between Drake and the Irish terrorist (Kieron Moore) whose rich wife (Wendy Williams) has no clue as to what he and his friends are really using the nearby bird sanctuary for. The episode builds tension well, although events are wrapped up hastily as Drake relies as much on luck, and the actions of others, than any of his own skills to survive this latest adventure.
