Only fair.

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.
