Very similar to the hour long episode: YOU'RE NOT IN ANY TROUBLE, ARE YOU?
29 December 2009 | by uszoninycSee all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Patrick McGoohan, Danger Man, Prisoner, et. al.

I say that because even I understand that having to 'crank' out new episodes can get laborious.

I recently got the first DANGER MAN series - the 1/2 hour episodes, and have been watching them - and, enjoying them immensely.

I just watched NAME, DATE & PLACE, and found the episode to be similar to the hour-long episode YOU'RE NOT IN ANY TROUBLE ARE YOU - but, what's nice to see is how the same plot is tackled (slightly) differently by each show.

The writing of both are credited to different people, but it can't be coincidence that the 'bones' of each are exactly the same - mysterious murder for hire organisation, to track them down, Drake puts a hit on...himself.

It's nice to see how the 1/2 hour shows can compress what was in the hour long episode, a slowly, ever-building tension.

It's also refreshing to see the 'earlier, younger Drake, who is a bit less cynical, a little less formed - but John Drake nonetheless.
