In "Flood on the Goodwins," a fishing boat in the English Channel is hijacked by a desperate Nazi saboteur.
As the episode opens, Captain Mac and Mr. Dundas are on their fishing boat searching for the victims of a tanker destroyed by Nazi sabotage.
When Captain Mac and Mr. Dundas return home they are met by a strange man claiming to be a government agent. He wants to be taken to Belgium, but they find it suspicious that he wants to travel there in a fishing boat. When they refuse his offer, the man forces Captain Mac, Mr. Dundas, and Mrs. Dundas onto their boat at gunpoint and demands that they take him to Belgium. Soon they find out that he is a Nazi agent on his way back from a completed mission. Can they find a way to outsmart him before they reach the Goodwin Sands?
