Danger Man - Name, Date and Place television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. With the assassination of the Italian Minister, Drake (Patrick McGoohan) comes to the conclusion that there is an underground murder network taking out high valued targets for the right price. All seven of the victims have been shot in the back but otherwise there is no connection between the killings as the victims have all have various national and political ties. Believing the best opportunity to discover the network is to pose as a potential client, Drake goes in undercover as a man with an enemy needing to be silenced.

Danger Man - The Girl Who Liked G.I.'s TV review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. Drake (Patrick McGoohan) looks into the murder of a U.S. soldier on leave in Munich who had knowledge of a secret missile project. Retracing the dead man’s final day in the city which leads him to assume the role of a soldier himself and get a date with the local woman (Anna Gaylor) who was the last person to see the soldier alive. While initially suspicious of her, especially after he is attacked by two men following their date, Drake soon discovers the woman has nothing to hide (other than a disapproving father and a weakness for American soldiers). It turns out the soldier’s death has nothing to do with the girl, or the soldier’s top secret clearance, but only with a single photograph the man took around the city that someone is willing to kill for.

Danger Man - The Island television review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. The transportation of two assassins (Allan Cuthbertson and Peter Stephens) back to the United States is complicated by the spoiled daughter (Ann Firbank) of the airline’s owner who forces her way onto Drake‘s (Patrick McGoohan) charter flight and inadvertantly allows the prisoners to crash the aircraft in mid-flight. Stranded on an island with only a single inhabitant (Michael Ripper) who the assassins reach first and are able to turn to their side, things don’t look good for our hero.
