Welcome
Welcome to my website dedicated to the sixties television series Danger Man also known as Secret Agent Man in America, and Destination Danger in France. Staring Patrick McGoohan as John Drake. I'm currently updating this site so if you have any information you'd like to share, please email me
My website does touch upon the McGoohan cult masterpiece ‘The Prisoner’, looking at the links between the two series and the actors and actresses that appear in both. But if you're looking for more in-depth information on 'The Prisoner' then look no further than our excellent sister-site ‘The Unmutual’. Visit The Unmutual Website for information on 'The Prisoner'
Recent Updates
Headshot of Rick/Caro Minas My search for ‘Not So Jolly Roger’ singer/songwriter Rick Minas continues... and I have recently been contacted by an old friend of the family who gave me the following information:

In 1967 Rick Minas (Real name Caro Minas) married Susan Melhuish in Brent, Middlesex. They had a daughter, Kat Nadine Minas born 1971 in Northampton, Northamptonshire. The friend remembers visiting them in Brighton after Susan and Caro had split-up. I’d love to get in contact with Caro, Susan or Kat, so if you can help it’d be great to hear from you - m@courtman.co.uk
