Trivia

Although hugely successful in Europe, this show failed to find an audience in American syndication and was cancelled after one season. By the time production resumed in 1964, the James Bond fad had hit and Americans were more receptive to the idea of a spy TV series. See more »

Quotes

John Drake: [Opening titles narration] Every government has its Secret Service branch: America, CIA; France, Deuxieme Bureau; England, MI5. NATO also has its own. A messy job? Well that's when they usually call on me, or someone like me. Oh yes: my name is Drake. John Drake.

Nothing much, really
16 August 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this series on TV back in the 1960s. I thought it was terrific then even if I can't recall many details.

Seeing it again on DVD, nearly 50 years on, I must confess to being very disappointed. The story lines are boring, predictable and without any finesse whatsoever. And the 25 minute format just doesn't work: it is simply to short to allow any kind of reasonable character and story development. It is all very formulaic and bland.

The only saving grace is some of the actors, even if they don't get much chance of real acting.

We must have been really starved back in the 1960s, to have considered this series good. Oh well, another fond memory out the window.
