Storyline

McGill (known as "Mac") was a former U.S. intelligence agent based in London. After being thrown out of the agency for something he did not do, he finds his "false" reputation has preceded him everywhere he goes. To make ends meet he takes odd and intriguing "private eye" type jobs all over Europe, all the while trying to clear his name. Written by Kevin Steinhauer <K.Steinhauer@BoM.GOV.AU>

Trivia

McGill's pistol, in almost all of the episodes, is a Smith & Wesson 39. The 39 was designed in hopes of being a replacement for the U.S. Army's Colt 1911 during Service Pistol Trials held in 1954. The S&W 39 is a 9mm double action semi-automatic, while the Colt 1911 is a .45 single action semi-automatic. While the Army decided to stick with the Colt, some U.S. Special Forces in the Vietnam War carried the S&W 39. So conceivably McGill may have trained with the weapon and been issued one by "American Intelligence" before he was scapegoated out. See more »

Coolest TV hero...ever!
2 November 2004 | by (cramlington u.k.) – See all my reviews

I first saw "Man in a suitcase" in 1967-I loved it then and still do.This is one of the A.T.V."action" series of the 60's,but it differs from the likes of "The Saint" or "The Baron",in the cynical edge to the plots and the vulnerability of the hero.Richard Bradford as "McGill"(no first name!),was simply the coolest TV detective ever.He looked great(in fab "pre hippy era 60's" suits,with narrow lapels and thin ties),was as tough as nails,moody and unpredictable,and acted like Brando playing Peter Gunn-oh,and made smoking a cigarette into an art form.One amazing thing is he didn't always win either,and when he did he might well come out of things half beaten to death,many of the endings of episodes were pretty downbeat.The producers did make one ghastly mistake though-a guy like McGill should never have driven a car as totally uncool as a Hillman Imp!

Best episode for me-"Brainwash".

This show is a strong candidate for the best ever theme tune and titles.
