Throughout the 1960s, Patrick McGoohan appeared on British TV screens as a secret agent. From 1960 until 1968, with a break inbetween, he appeared in “Danger Man” (called “Secret Agent” in the USA), but Patrick is probably most well known as Number Six in “The Prisoner”.
The first episode of “Danger Man” was filmed at Portmeiron, a location McGoohan would return to, and written by Brian Clemens, a name closely associated with “The Avengers” having written, produced and directed many episodes of the show.
It’s considered to be John Drake, Patrick’s character in “Danger Man”, that is dropped into the mysterious village of “The Prisoner” when he resigns.
Despite having just 17 episodes, the impact of “The Prisoner” was phenomenal when it initally aired and continues to have a profound affect on subsequent television shows that reference the stylish blend of surrealism, cryptic sci-fi, and psychological mystery.
Set in the picture-postcard Welsh location of Portmeiron, many actors & actresses appeared in episodes of “The Prisoner” including Fenella Fielding and Peter Wyngarde, plus more talent from “The Avengers” and Carry On films such as Richard Wattis, Norman Mitchell, Wanda Ventham, and Patrick Cargill.
