A runaway success for ITC in the 1960s, Danger Man originally started as a half-hour 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 it sent into situations too tricky or dangerous for normal spies to undertake. McGoohan's simmering, compelling performance catapulted him into movies and paved the way for his undeniable your 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 from guest stars such as Ian Hendry, Dawn Addams, Virginia Maskwell, Warren Mitchell, Sylvia Syms, Glyn Owen and Donald Houston.
