    Danger Man




    A runaway success for ITC in the 1960s, Danger Man originally started as a halfhour series before hitting its stride with a transition to the fifty-minute format. This set contains all 47 fifty-minute shows (the last two in colour), charting the exploits of John Drake – an exemplary agent for British Intelligence who is sent into situations too tricky or dangerous for normal spies to undertake. McGoohan’s simmering, compelling erformance catapulted him into movies and paved the way for his undeniable tour de force – The Prisoner.

    Danger Man features intriguing stories from top writers such as Ralph Smart, Donald Jonson, Philip Broadley and Tony Williamson, complemented by direction from
    stalwarts of the filmed action series genre such as Charles Crichton, Michael Truman, Peter Yates, Don Chaffey and even McGoohan himself. Showcasing all the hallmarks of the very best filmed ITC series, Danger Man features exceptional performances rom guest stars such as Ian Hendry, Dawn Addams, Virginia Maskell, Warren Mitchell, Sylvia Syms, Glyn Owen and Donald Houston.

    At last a box set containing all the 50 min format episodes of Danger Man.

    This box set is the best set yet containing superb extras and a booklet to boot. The picture quality is superb, the box design well thought out and is a treat to see these episodes after all those years.

    These extra long episodes are far better than its half hour counter-part. John Drake now appears to be British and more rebellious than ever. Is John Drake Number Six, who cares? Just enjoy these great stories.

    This is the 'perfect companion' to the forth-coming Prisoner box set, also from Network.

    And all this is great value too if bought from Network’s website.
