Aaah…Patrick McGoohan. He might well have made some dodgy film and TV appearances in the latter part of his career in the US, but he makes up for it with some classic Brit movie appearances and with the leading role in two 60s TV classics – The Prisoner and Dangerman, which is set for a DVD reissue as Dangerman – Special Edition box set.
McGoohan stars as British spy John Drake, sent to locations too tricky or dangerous for ‘normal’ spies. Hence the show’s name. Well written, smartly directed and with the usual smattering of well-known faces, it returns as a box set featuring all 47 episodes over 13 discs, along with special features including a still gallery, script archive and an exclusive 176-page book.
Available from 30th July 2007, it should retail for around £79.99.
