John Drake is a special operative for M19, specialising in security assignments against any subversive element which threatened world peace.
After several seasons of black-and-white episodes, it was decided to switch to color. But after only two episodes were completed, McGoohan quit the series to devote his energies to The Prisoner (1967). These 2 episodes Secret Agent: Koroshi (1967) & Secret Agent: Shinda Shima (1967) were edited together to form the film Koroshi (1968).
Episode titles appear at the end of the episode opening credits, rather than at the beginning.
Two color episodes were produced as part of a season that was interrupted when McGoohan quit the series to make "The Prisoner." These two episodes were edited together to form the movie Koroshi (1968). The original unedited episodes were released on video in the UK in the 1980s.
