Trivia

Patrick McGoohan originally refused to appear in this programme because of George Markstein's involvement. McGoohan and Markstein had animosity toward each other after working together on The Prisoner (1967). McGoohan was eventually persuaded to be interviewed for the programme. But shortly before it was to go on air, McGoohan requested that his interview be deleted. Producer Chris Rodley decided to allow the programme to air with McGoohan's interview. McGoohan later sent Rodley a videotape which consisted of him alone talking to the camera and answering self-written questions about the series and his philosophies on life. He wanted the tape to replace his interview segments but the programme had already been completed. "The Man" references McGoohan's tape at the end of the programme when he says "a package just came from L.A. this morning". (McGoohan lived in the Los Angeles area.) See more »

The Joy Of Six
30 July 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

This half-hour documentary was screened by Channel 4 following a repeat of the final 'Prisoner' episode ( 'Fall Out' ) in 1984, and has never been rerun by the station or made available on D.V.D. This is strange, seeing how it features interviews with many of the people responsible for the show, such as producer David Tomblin, directors Don Chaffey and Pat Jackson, set designer Jack Shampan, actor Alexis Kanner, script editor George Markstein, and, surprisingly, Patrick McGoohan himself. The filmed interviews were linked by actor Saul Reichlin, occupying a 'Green Dome' style control room. No attempt was made to analyse the series in depth or interpret its hidden meanings, instead the show's history was presented in a straightforward fashion. Particularly interesting was Markstein's assertion that 'No.6' was always intended to be 'John Drake' of 'Danger Man' fame, despite McGoohan's frequent denials. The man himself was, as you'd expect, non-committal, cheekily signing off with 'Be Seeing You!'.
