Two years after the original "Danger Man" series concluded, it was revamped and retconned. The series returned in a longer format. (1 hour/episode instead of 30 minutes). John Drake was now an agent for MI9, getting exotic assignments exclusively from Her Majesty's Secret Service as an agent of M9. This version of the series introduced several Bond-like gadgets, including a tape-recording shaver, as well as a lighter with a camera hidden inside. Written by

Different opening credits sequences were devised for the original UK broadcasts, with episodes alternating between them. One shows Drake walking towards the camera in negative, then a sharp closeup of his eyes in positive. The second sequence starts with a closeup of Drake's eyes, then pulls back on a photograph of his complete face. See more »
Episode titles appear at the end of the episode opening credits, rather than at the beginning. See more »
This spy drama was in the mold of the first '007' movie, "DR. No". A crossover from the paranoid deep cover spy of the 50's to the gadget and spoof of the 60's. And to top it off, Patrick McGoohan, as the secret agent, was terrific. Cool, low keyed, sharp as a tack, traveling to different ports of call. Plots were generally good. Unfortunately, due to its mature nature and age, chances of it being televised grows less year by year...Alas poor Yorick. If you do gain access to these episodes, go for it. You won't be disappointed.
