pre-bond spy stuff.,
This review is from: Danger Man: The Complete Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
a dated series to be sure and certainly not as good as james bond(on which this is similar), but a good programme all the same.
patrick mcgoohan does a brilliant job as special agent john drake. i like the way the character is far removed from simon templar for example; slightly distant, has no time for romance plus the fact that drake has to work for a living - hence the fact that he doesn't display the care-free attitude of templar.
the 25 minute format hasn't always been a success for a live action series, but it works well enough here. the pace is always fast moving at least. you will notice the usual backlot sets that substitute for "foreign locations," but don't let that put you off.
notable guest stars include future film star robert shaw, t.v regular derren nesbitt, under-rated actor nigel green and many others.
this d.v.d set has been deleted for quite a while, and could a considerable sum but it is worth it.
