May 17th will see the release of a boxed set of an equally popular adventure show of the period, The Saint , featuring the first 39 episodes (1962/63) starring Leslie Charteris' suave hero Simon Templar, played by Roger Moore. Like the Danger Man boxed set, these early episodes are in black and white.
Several episodes from both shows were available on DVD on Region 2 a few years ago, but failed to reach the end of the first series. This is the first time boxed sets of Danger Man and The Saint have been produced in the UK.
