Editorial Reviews

After 10 years working for U.S. intelligence, 'Mac' McGill (Richard Bradford, The Untouchables) knows a thing or two about living by his wits and getting the job done. But after his employment is terminated under mysterious circumstances, he has to look for work among those prepared to pay for his services. From his base in London, McGill travels all over Europe and beyond, taking on the jobs no one else can handle, tracking down the people no one else can find. This action-packed Cold War drama aired on ABC in the late 1960s and features savvy writing and a host of superb guest stars, including Donald Sutherland (Pride & Prejudice), Felicity Kendal (Rosemary & Thyme), Peter Arne (The Return of the Pink Panther), Ray McAnally (My Left Foot), Colin Blakely (The Beiderbecke Affair), Philip Madoc (A Mind to Kill), and Edward Fox (Gandhi).

ABC & UKs 1968 second half of the series staring Richard Bradford as Mac McGill, in a spy/intrigue suspense that also provides a travelogue to many places. London based, Mac after being forced from the CIA, freelances in the worst of spy gigs, always at risk, but cool and persistent. If it pays Mac goes, with trademark suitcase. Expect dial phones, narrow ties, mini-skirts, low tech 60s, but hard hitting action. McGill's many enemies wish him dead. Mac likes his cigarettes and ladies. His cocky manner irks his foes, but endears TV fans of the Cold War era. In the bonus interview, Bradford puts down scripts, but action/spy fans will like it. It's from the same era of Man from U.N.C.L.E., I Spy, Avengers, Mod Squad, and James Bond, so Mac chases with the best. Not all 15 episodes 5 star, OK so it's not 21st century high-tech espionage, but sit back and enjoy the nostalgia, and many guest stars.

52 min. episodes have SUBTITLES: * = guest stars
~1 Burden of Proof-Plantation owner (*Patrick Allen) abuses AFRICA workers with ally Fr. Loyola (*Colin Blakely). Investigating McGill must choose dead/alive.
~2 Why They Killed Nolan-Mac's PI LONDON friend (*Sam Kydd) recognizes someone (*Ursula Howells) and calls for Mac who gets accused. Who killed Nolan?
~3 The Boston Square-Mac to GREECE chasing man (*Vincent Ball) & stolen sea farming data. Albanian spy (*Peter Arge) also interested. CIA man (*Rex Everhart) helps. Red herring?
~4 Somebody Loses, Somebody...Wins?-Br agent (*Jacqueline Pearce) defects with a loyalty test involving ex-lover McGill in GERMANY, in danger, again. Kommandant is (*Philip Madoc, who will also star in #12).
~5 Blind Spot-Blind PARIS girl's (*Felicity Kendall-35 yr younger "Rosemary" & Thyme) ma is killed.

Responsible for a string hit shows in the mystery, espionage, and mystery genres, like The Avengers, The Saint, and Danger Man, Britain's ITC (Incorporated Television Company) Entertainment also produced Man In a Suitcase (1967-68) a series that lasted for just one season, producing 30 episodes featuring Richard Bradford as an ex-intelligence operative named McGill. The series had been previously released as an import, but is now available in Region 1 DVD. This release contains the final 15 episodes in the series, and is accompanied by a second set with the first 15 episodes.

In the first episode of the series, it is learned that McGill (no first name stated) was an American agent who was disgraced about six years previously, and is regarded by some as a traitor. McGill discovers that his reputation was sacrificed as part of a scheme to plant agents behind the iron curtain. Rather than endanger those operatives, McGill chooses to remain in disgrace. He makes his living doing investigative work, and other jobs that usually involve intrigue, and danger. The title of the series comes from McGill's somewhat nomadic lifestyle, as he frequently travels from place to place carrying his worn tan suitcase.

McGill may travel light, and doesn't always go first class, but he is seldom in dire financial straits. Even with a tarnished reputation in some circles, McGill seems to have no shortage of employment opportunities, and is sometimes selected to be the fall guy. McGill is ruggedly handsome, but has some rough edges, and lacks the refinement and sophistication of a Simon Templar. His prematurely graying hair makes him look older.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Novel Dose of the Late 60s September 24, 2014
This set contains the second half of the only season of this ITC series from 1967-8 revolving around McGill, a disgraced American agent in Europe who takes on freelance assignments. I didn't watch it during its original run, but viewing them now is a wonderful exercise in time travel, for the photography, sets and music evoke the real spirit of the late 60s, at least as represented by quirky action shows. And quirky is a good word to use with this show. McGill often accepts jobs from questionable clients with ambiguous morals, the stories sometimes begin in midstream and not infrequently end ambiguously or with the sense of another shoe about to drop. Ron Grainer's main theme is catchy in the extreme, and the musical backgrounds and cues are reminiscent of programs like The Prisoner and Danger Man. (And, in fact, apparently Man in a Suitcase employed many crew members from Danger Man (aka Secret Agent) when star Patrick McGoohan moved on to make The Prisoner.)

And nothing is more quirky about the series than Richard Bradford, who plays McGill. A dedicated method actor, Bradford lurches about and smugly emotes without let-up. Yet, from start to finish, the offbeat plots, the music, and the presence of a number of ITC and other familiar character actors in support makes this a must-watch for the period afficionado. I give it four stars because, well, it's not perfect: at times it's got a cheesy look, story details become improbable or slightly questionable, and there is that frenetic dance scene in The Whisper. Nonetheless, this one is fun and engaging.
