Actor Patrick McGoohan died yesterday in Los Angeles after a short illness.
McGoohan, who was born in New York but raised in England and Ireland, came to screen prominence in ITV's early 1960s drama series Danger Man, in which he played a secret agent.
He was also considered for the lead role in the first James Bond movie, Dr No, before Sean Connery was cast.
We here at Crossed Combs will of course always remember him for Prisoner. If there ever was a cult tv series, Prisoner sure is one. We suggest you watch some episodes, book a trip to Portmeirion and above all, never forget that you're not a number - you are a free man.
Rest in peace Patrick McGoohan. Be seeing you.
