The opening shot of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a welcome sight in this tale of the first world problems for this Adventurer. An episode of locations more so than content as we see the sights of Sydney, Australia, Wuppertal, Germany and the fascinating “Schwebebahn” floating tram. The mineralogist angle of this story is a feasible and the antagonists motivations are written well into this somewhat believable script.
Foster was threatening Harry with a long jail term for killing him and another man named Farr, in some sort of blackmail scheme. The police are hounding Harry because the evidence points to his guilt but he knows he is being framed. Further evidence found through Harry’s house and clothes paint him as a criminal. After being called to the airport by Foster, Harry is knock out unconscious and wakes up on an airplane. Harry is left stranded in an airplane about 4000 feet in the air after Foster jumps out of the plane, as the last stage in the elaborate plan of revenge by Foster. Harry is walked through the landing of the plane which he does but right into the hands of the police.
A wonderful story of blackmail and revenge. I was actually surprised by the depth of writing in this episode. The episode is well acted by the team of the Protectors and Derren Nesbitt. I found the story lacking of credibility especially the skill behind the blackmail but an original complex story of blackmail. Loved it.
