Episode Summary

Doug and Tony are captured by the Gestapo in Cherbourg on June 4, 1944, two days before D-Day. A scientist, Dr. Heinz Kleinemann, working for the Reich plans to brainwash Doug and allows Tony to escape. Tony falls in with the Resistance while Kleinemann successfully brainwashes Doug to believe he is 'Heinrich Kriegler', whose father was killed by Tony. The Resistance cell is suspicious of Tony but need his electronic knowledge. Doug tries to kill Tony but Tony escapes, although the attempt further arouses the Resistance's suspicions. Tony is forced to shoot Doug later, and takes him captive. Doug reveals a traitor within the cell, and then they launch an attack on the Gestapo HQ and recover Kleinemann and the serum they need to restore Doug to normal. They succeed, and Kleinemann restores Doug's identity. The Resistance take Kleinemann into custody and Tony and Doug are whisked away as the bombing begins.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • On Major Hoffmann's office wall, there's a picture of Rudolf Hess, Hitler's deputy up to 1941. After Hess flew to Scotland year on an abortive peace mission that was unauthorised by Hitler, he was denounced and became reviled by the Nazi regime, so it's highly unlikely that an SS commander would have Hess' photo on his office wall in 1944, when this story takes place.

      • When Doug is being brainwashed to have his identity changed, he is shown slides of himself obviously wide awake, lucid and dressed in a Nazi uniform. How could such pictures already exist, given that Doug was taken off for brainwashing soon after being captured and did not don the Nazi uniform until after the brainwashing was complete?

      • When Mirabeau gets out of the car to help Tony get a wounded Doug into the car, you can see actor Robert Carricart slip and slide off-camera to the right. In the next shot he is well to the right of the two as he helps them up.
