Drake protects an idiot....a pretty idiot, but an idiot nevertheless!
15 November 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Conspirators" is a good episode of "Danger Man". However, it has one serious problem--one of the characters is just too stupid to be believable. Otherwise, I would have rated this one higher.

When the episode begins, Lord Arthur Lindsay is going out hunting. However, only moments later, he's confronted by some thugs and they kill him--making it appear like it's a hunting accident. Drake and the folks he's working for do NOT think this is an accident. Lindsay had been with an embassy in West Africa and was going to be testifying about a recent uprising--and perhaps those who stand something to lose orchestrated this 'accident'.

Drake heads to the island where Lady Lindsay is because he thinks she could be next. Why? Because someone put some blurb in the newspaper saying she was working on a tell-all book about her husband! When he informs Lady Lindsay about this, she is amazingly blasé. You'd think that having a secret agent show up telling you that there may be a plot to kill you would get much more of a reaction. Well, it turns out it's not because she had anything to do with her husband's death--she's just stupid. In fact, it takes this dolt the longest time to accept any of this--and that is why she was a serious problem with the show. Otherwise, it's full of action and intrigue and is worth seeing.
