Whereas Bond was all flash, Drake who never carried a gun, he felt them to be "noisy, and they can hurt someone" instead used his brain, and is very adept at defending himself with his hands , also eschewed having the "babe of the week", or even having Drake involved with a woman. The show which had initially been a to half-hour series, also under the same title and character name, but was slightly "retconned" when it became an hour-long series became an international hit, and helped propel series' lead Patrick McGoohan to international fame in fact, Mr.
McGoohan was twice offered the role of James Bond, and twice refused. The first time, he declined, but recommended a friend of his, Sir Sean Connery. Unlike many other spy series at this time, Danger Taken as a whole, "Danger Man" is one of the finest Television series of its era.

Danger Man consisted of 4 seasons done in a somewhat unusual manner. There were 39 half-hour episodes filmed in black and white. The series was cancelled after this first season and it was not until that it was reprised because of the "spy craze" of that time for its second season. The fourth season consists of only 2 1-hour episodes that are filmed in color or is it "Colour" :-? The character of John Drake is one of a spy with morals.
He doesn't use women, rarely carries a gun much less uses one, and prefers to think his way through his missions. He is no weakling however McGoohan is 6' 2. He is adept at several languages and reasonably good at disguises. The gadgetry is more sparse and more believable than that found in the Bond films, with the most common spy accessories being a camera hidden in a cigarette lighter, and an electric razor that doubles as a tape recorder. He is sometimes at odds with his superiors when they request him to do things that he considers immoral or dishonorable and pays the price for doing what he sees as right.
When aired in the US, a different opening sequence and song was added. Originally the series title of "Danger Man" was going to be retained but at the last moment it was deemed that "Secret Agent" would catch a bigger share of the US audience.
Secret Agent Man’s last mission
It is hoped they will pubish the remaining 7 Season 3 episodes and the 2 Season 4 episodes, and it is the personal hope of this author that the will then consider to publish the original 39 half hour episodes of Season 1. Patrick McGoohan stopped doing Danger Man because he thought the stories had run their course and because he wanted to do his own unique project, which became the legendary series "The Prisoner". There has been ongoing rumor that a Prisoner Movie is in the make, with McGoohan having the hand at writing the script, and possibly directing and staring in a cameo role.

Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. The whole village is destroyed! Our own embassy says this. You know something that very few people know, and I suspect you ought to leave all this out, but the fact is, in the American foreign service, there are a lot of patriots.
They all fight for American policy, right or wrong. Central America, Vietnam, wherever, except in the Middle East. The whole career service in the Middle East spends all its time fighting its own government. Anyone who doubts that can use the Freedom of Information Act to get the cables, all of them pleading with our own government to stop this support of Israel to that point. And how did the Israelis get in power? But they know nothing about terrorism. It might drive us into bankruptcy.
Like I was saying, we have to find the reason these people are terrorists. The job of the CIA is to report why they are terrorists. Now I said there are two categories. The first, people who have been deprived and been ruined. The second category is this: A lot of these guys have found a way of life.
They drive Mercedes. There are professional terrorists now. Maybe they were criminals originally, criminally inclined, but now they have political motivations to justify themselves. The Soviet policy is one of denial, not to gain territory for themselves but to deny it to us, to deprive us of the raw materials from Africa — cobalt, magnesium, chromium — that we have to have for a highly technological society like ours.
Are you saying the Soviets are behind terrorism? No, they exploit the troubles. Most of the terrorism in the world today the Soviets do not instigate. The Soviets are delighted when we draw up a gunboat in the Beirut harbor. They love this. It makes people hate us. And how would we have done that?
Let the Shiites loose. Forget it. What encourages them is to get all that prime time on television. They wanted the publicity they got.

And they wanted us to look like jackasses, which they succeeded in doing. In a war, you lose battles now and then. The best thing to do is cut your losses and get the hell out. You think the media was out of control? The media is always out of control. But you can prevent the media from getting the information in the first place, by having rules for those who have the secrets not to release them to the media.
All right, how would the rules have worked in Beirut?
How could you have prevented the madness that ensued? You know, if a plane lands in Turkey right now, the minute they establish there are hijackers on it, you know what happens?
They cut off all communications. They just sit there and rot as far as the Turks are concerned. We do have a kind of adversary relationship with the press. And they can use it any way they want to.
