Editorial Reviews

A new collection from the coolest spy series and genesis of the secret-agent genre. Patrick McGoohan plays John Drake in this groundbreaking series of a spy who stands firm on his principles and rarely resorts to violence. John Drake out-Bonds James Bond (and predates him), and the theme song by Johnny Rivers is the coolest of cool. DVD extras include a McGoohan biography and filmography and the full-length US premiere. Set 4. 7 hours on 2 DVDs. Simon says: Secret Agent eventually evolved into The Prisoner, so it’s not surprising that the lead character was played by none other than Patrick McGoohan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Danger Man Set 4: Gadgets and Gizmos December 10, 2003
Patrick McGoohan returns as British secret agent John Drake in the fourth boxed set of one hour long episodes of Danger Man. Presented in black and white, are adventures in espionage around the world. Here are summaries and/or comments for the episodes in this set. Episode ratings are on a scale from one to five (best).
Volume 7: (Disc 1)
Sting in the Tail (3): This episode features Derren Nesbitt, as "Rachid Noureddine", a hit man headquartered in Beirut. Drake's plan is to lure him to where he can be captured, by using his girlfriend, a nightclub singer. Drake's cover is as an artist, interested in painting the woman's picture. Nesbitt is an actor who usually has a riveting screen presence, and this is the case here. There are sparks, when he and Drake, clash swords over the woman. The plot is simple and direct, though accepting McGoohan as a romantic figure is always a challenge. This episode's title is drawn from a gadget weapon similar to those provided by Q Branch in the Bond films.
The Black Book (4): Sir Noel Blanchard has been indiscreet, and is feeling a blackmailer's bite. John Drake is enlisted to look into the situation, and is sent to Paris to investigate. Tracking the payoff money, Drake encounters a mysterious young woman, and a connection to a Russian spy network. An above average episode, that has a gritty edge. More gadgetry, this time it is a typewriter that tracks and transmits radio signals.
English Lady Takes Lodgers (4): After George Stanway, a well known local smuggler disappears, Drake is sent to Lisbon to investigate. Stanway's wife Emma, takes in boarders, and is on unusually good terms with her lodgers. Drake too becomes a guest, and is soon swept up into the mysterious affairs of the villa's occupants.

5.0 out of 5 stars More realistic than James Bond October 16, 2002
By it
Verified Purchase
The people involved in producing and writing this program were previously involved in early post war journalism specializing in espionage. This is what makes the program so realistic. Some liberties are taken from reality by the use of gadgets. Watching this series will give members of the X generation a feel for what the world was like a few decades before they were born.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danger Man, Great TV December 16, 2006
All the Danger man DVDs are excellent. The shows are extremely thought provoking and are much more enjoyable if viewed, giving time for some entertaining analysis that almost always occurs when I put these on. Any fan of Mcgoohan, British TV or TV with some intellectual bite to it will enjoy this series.

He watched this as a kid, I'd never seen it, although, I'd heard the song. We LOVE it, I've ordered every episode!
If you like James Bond, order the dvds.
