Thought For The Day

    There is a song Secret Agent Man sung by Johnny Rivers, and a line in that song comes "They've given you a number, and taken away your name." The nameless agent in The Girl Who Was Death, combined with the opening theme to Secret Agent {Danger Man} is suggestive. It would seem to me that in The Girl Who Was Death Patrick McGoohan pays homage to that of his former role. The episode is not meant to be taken seriously, it may be meaningless when compared to the much darker, serious episodes, but is pure escapism.
