Danger Man - The Brothers television review

Our Throwback Thursday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. When an important diplomatic package is part of a downed plane’s cargo stolen by bandits, John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) heads to the coast of Sicily to find those responsible and retrieve the intelligence. Unable to directly contact the Morelli brothers (Ronald Fraser and Derren Nesbitt), Drake’s plan is to earn the confidence of a confederate by posing as a rich businessman in need of the documents for an impending deal. Helping the woman (Lisa Gastoni) escape from prison goes a long way to help sell Drake’s cover and earn enough trust for an introduction.

Danger Man - The Relaxed Informer television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. On the search for a traitor passing on secrets, the episode begins with John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) stealing a car in order for his men to examine all items within and find a recording. Passing off the entire incident as nothing more than auto-theft by an American deserter, all the items (except the recording) are returned to the local man while Drake sets his attention on interpreter Ruth Mitchell (Moira Redmond). Although it’s clear it is her voice on the recording, Ruth vehemently denies any knowledge of the recording.

Danger Man - The Gallows Tree television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. The discovery of fresh fingerprints from an enemy spy (Paul Rogers) believed to be long dead sends John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) to the edge of the world after a slippery target who alluded Drake’s one chance to bring him in more than a decade before. While NATO believes the spy may be involved in some kind of smuggling operation what Drake finds is a retired man who has long ago given up spycraft and appears to be content running a small bar and inn far away from his old life.

Danger Man - The Honeymooners television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. John Drake (Patrick McGoohan) is sent to small island nation in the Far East when a couple’s honeymoon getaway ends in murder. With the husband (Ronald Allen) jailed and facing execution, Drake attempts to pry details from the uncooperative bride (Sally Bazely) about the unfortunate night when a local man was shot while mistakenly entering their motel room. Not helping matters is the fact that the husband has become a pawn in the political maneuverings of both the country’s President (Michael Peake) and the Minister of Justice (Lee Montague).
