Patrick McGoohan changed the history of television with his landmark series The Prisoner. Many TV series since have cited The Prisoner as an inspiration, including Lost. But there is a lot more to McGoohan than The Prisoner. This renowned actor has an impressive CV of stage, screen and TV productions, and is often declared to be one of the best actors to have ever come out of Britain. Yet, his obsessive protection of his privacy and the often conflicting and provocative remarks made to the press over the years have created a need to set the record straight. This first ever biography of McGoohan does just that. It chronicles a career that begins on the Sheffield stage and ends with international stardom. The book details McGoohans classic television series Danger Man and The Prisoner; it explains why McGoohan was top choice for James Bond, and why he turned down the role; it explores the impact he had on both actors and directors he has worked with; and highlights McGoohans friendship with Peter Falk (who has written the foreword for this book) which has gained him two Emmy Awards.

Review: Patrick McGoohan: Danger Man or Prisoner?

User Review  - Tony Farmer - Goodreads

Very disappointing for fans of Patrick Mcgoohan. If you know nothing about the actor it will be informative so I give it one star for that. Older fans may be disappointed with it. Why? It's hard going and amateur like. Read full review
