Danger Man

The Traitor

Terry Bishop
Director


Drake journeys to northern India to find who is passing sensitive information "north over the mighty Himalayas" to China.

A fairly average episode, bolstered mainly by Howard's nuanced characterization of the fatalistic title character. Goddard could almost be a future reflection of an older Drake. Unfortunately, this is a bit obscured by one of the few problems with Danger Man (and almost all British TV of this period in general): the continued portrayal of Indians and Asians by very obviously English actors. This is embarassingly evident in this episode, especially when so many of the background extras are real East Indians. The fact that Warren Mitchell is the main culprit here is an irony not lost on me! This is not a complaint directed at the actors, just at the unfortunate state of things at the time.
