+Simply Paul Posted June 1, 2009 Share Posted June 1, 2009 Cult series made in mid 60's by and staring Patrick McGoohan after he finished with several years/seasons as 'Danger Man'. Supposedly what happens to character John Drake when he resigns from the Secret Service. Only ran for about 20 episodes. From what I recall ITC, ATV or whoever the money was behind it, decided to pull the plug, and McGoohan just wrapped it all up in a rushed final episode, which was well tripped out in surreal 60's style such as it is probably still argued as to what on earth it was all about. The really worrying thing is that one of the US companies is supposed to be making a 'mini-series' of it this year! <geek>Filmed 66/67, broadcast 67/68. 17 episodes and ITC's Lew Grade did pull its funding, resulting in a curious final couple of episodes, with the last one, Fall Out, being shot within hours of being written, overnight. I set a cache near the location, Portmeirion View, when I was there for a Prisoner convention to show a couple of my short spoof films based on the programme. The AMC remake series is due out later this year.</geek> The Maggie clue swung it for me; that's GC17CXT Falkland Islands 2nd Albermarle Harbour. It's been on my watchlist, for no very good reason, for months. Quote Link to comment
