  • The kidnapping of a now-elderly Nazi who has been hiding in Spain doesn't go according to plan, and Israeli agents are faced with a moral conundrum.

    7.5
    Although the Madrid suburb where most of the action takes place looks more like a typical English "new town" of the early 60s, this episode airs interesting moral questions and had, in 1964, some topicality - the controversial kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann had occurred only a few years earlier. Aware that the Spanish police have rumbled their scheme to smuggle a war criminal out of the country, the Israelis must decide whether to murder the old German - which would make their quest one of revenge, not justice - or to surrender and trust to the conscience of the Spaniards. Their dilemma might have had a bit more edge (Spain's pre-war ties to Nazi Germany go unmentioned) and is resolved a bit too straightforwardly; but it's an engrossing drama.moreless
