REGION ONE DVD BONANZA
Fans of the work of Patrick McGoohan who are based in North America will be delighted that not one but two DVD releases of 2014 wil be of interest.
Firstly, December 9th sees the release of a 17-disc set of the entire "Danger Man" series ("Secret Agent" in North America). Extras include an interview with Catherine McGoohan and 3 audio commentaries with writers and directors which appeared on the 2004 Umbrella release of the series. However, the set is just a re-branding otherwise of the A&E release of several years ago, and therefore for a crisper/remastered picture you're recommended to get the Network DVD sets of the series.

Also released, for the first time on DVD (although the quality of the film transfer is poor) is the McGoohan film "The Moonshine War". Details HERE. Click HERE to read Tom Mayer's exclusive in-depth review for The Unmutual Website.
