Sets used for this film/double episode were later reused for The Prisoner (1967). Many actors from the series appear in this film. This film edits together the first two episodes of what was to have been the third season of Secret Agent (1964). After filming these episodes, Patrick McGoohan quit the series in order to create The Prisoner (1967) The character of Potter, played by 'Christopher Benjamin', reappears in an episodes of The Prisoner (1967), which is considered evidence of the lead character of the series (referred to only as No. 6) was in fact John Drake.

When Drake visits the policeman Commander Yamada in his Tokyo office, Yamada has a map of Tokyo Bay behind him written in English. A real police office in Tokyo would have had a Japanese, or at least bilingual map. See more »
Koroshi (1966) had the same plot of You Only Live Twice (1967)
When I saw this two part episode of secret agent John Drake, I was amazed. It was in color and besides the cool and inteligent British secret agent was running and fighting like he never did before. I enjoyed this T.V. show. Then one or two years later the film You Only Live Twice was released in Mexico city and I was there the very first day. I`m a James Bond fan and I wouldn`t miss a 007 movie for anything in the world, but as I was watching the movie I had a surprise, the plot was very much alike that John Drake episode I have seen years before. The Japaneses, the island, the secret base, a character named Tanaka... What happened here? Is it possible that a James Bond film has taken the same idea from a good T.V. show? Who stole who? Can anyone make it clear to me?
