John Drake's Mission: Drake is sent to India to find a scientist thought to be dead. The scientist was part of team that discovered a very dangerous bacterial agent that someone may be using in experiments.

The Dead Man Walks is a below average episode. There's not a lot of action - mostly Drake following and speaking with an Indian woman. There's also more padding than usual. It may have taken me 38 episodes, but I've finally figured out that all of Drake's scenes with Hardy are filler. Some are more entertaining than others, but they're still filler. The acting is okay. The Dead Man Walks includes Michael Ripper and a host of other British actors trying to pass themselves off as Indians. And, some of the sets look incredibly cheap. The jungle Drake walks though is full of plastic plants.

Overall, 4/10 is the best I can do.


The episode begins with a murder, though it's designed to look like a suicide. Next, Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is being given the case. It seems that not only has the man died in the opening scene but EVERYONE but one associated with a bacteriological research program. All the deaths seem accidental but the coincidence is too great. So, Drake sets off for the Kashmir region to find the lone survivor and get to the bottom of the case.

All in all, an adequate episode and nothing more. I did laugh, however, in the first scene that was supposedly in India, as Drake narrates that it's during the monsoon season and "...I was in a steam bath"--yet he isn't sweating at all and his suit is 100% clean and neatly pressed! Never was it so obvious that the series was filmed in a studio and not at any of the locales in the plots.
