TOUR OF DUTY
On Sunday 17th July 2005, a group of "Prisoner" and "Danger Man" fans met at St Neot's station in Cambridgeshire for the London Prisoner Group Annual Picnic. This year, a coach was hired for an in-depth tour of several locations from both series.
First off for the attendees was a trip to Eltisley (from "The Girl Who Was Death" - more details above), before a picnic stop in South Hatfield - setting for Hamden New Town from the "Danger Man" episode "Colony 3" (pictured left). The day concluded with a whistle stop tour of the grounds of the MGM studios, where both series were filmed, the Borehamwood and Well End locations from "The Girl Who Was Death", and several other film and TV studios including Elstree TVFS and BBC Elstree.
The substantial group of fans were joined on the tour by a Journalist from the Dutch TV magazine VPRO Gids, and TV historian and writer Robert Fairclough. A full photo report of the event can be found HERE. A similar event is planned for next year.
