    This is sad news.Patrick was a very early childhood hero of mine.I think Danger Man was the first show I liked that wasn't aimed at children.
    The Prisoner was even better,one of the most innovative shows ever produced.It's stood the test of time,a true classic.
    RIP Mr.McGoohan.

    Yes. Oddly enough I found a song called "I helped Patrick McGoohan escape" recently....

    Marvelous show. The Prisoner. Unforgetable.

    Thanks for letting us know. I hadn't heard the news. I loved "The Prisoner" when I was a kid.

    That's too bad. I really liked his work and watched The Prisoner until I had nearly memorized every line.
