John Drake is a special operative for M19, specialising in security assignments against any subversive element which threatened world peace.
The episode called "Colony Three," is about an area which has no official existence and where spies are kept against their will. The story bears a slight resemblance to the basic outline of "The Prisoner."
The opening credits for the original British version of the series are only about 10 seconds long -- one of the shortest credit sequences in TV history (among shows with opening credits). The American version of the opening credits is some 3 times as long.
The series was originally broadcast in the UK and Canada as "Danger Man." For American broadcast, new opening credits and a new them song - the hit "Secret Agent Man" by Johnny Rivers - was added. The original theme was "High Wire," a piece of music that can be heard following the opening credits in most episodes.
