Hmmm....well, actually, Star Trek is my third favorite universe. (ducks the tomatoes being hurled)

My favorite would have to be the Potterverse.

My second fave is a toss up between Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica (either 1978 or present show)

I think my second favorite universe is probably the 80's anime series Robotech with Doctor Who an awfully close second. Star Wars would be up there too, but I prefer the current comic book "Legacy-era" set 140 years after Return of the Jedi with Cade Skywalker...
I mean look at the series, how could they not? We know McGoohan is/was a veritle actor. But I agree with you veiw.

Ooh yes Eliza! POTTERVERSE! very fun

But I'd HANDS DOWN even above star trek is the world of Xanth. Yes. I've often dreamed that i live in xanth, have a magic talent. My talent would be to have have every talent possible, but only have it once. So I'd have to come up with new a creative ways to do the same thing if i needed too. Ya know. Oh man hang out with the centuars, harrass the mundanians, Go visit the Good magician.

Love. It.

The trick is (which only Donna Noble has mastered in recent years) is not to put yourself in a position where he could break your heart.

Yeah, i Think Donna Noble is doing really well, I still think that Martha did it best.... in the new series anyway, I never really watched the old versions.

It's really more of a case that McGoohan never ever answered the question of whether it was the same character. In hundreds of interviews about The Prisoner, that was the really the one question he always avoided giving any kind of answer to.

Questions are a burden to others, answers are a prison for oneself...

It makes him more of a mystery man than saying, "Yeah, it was all the same guy."

I personally think it is. He plays it the same way, dresses alike (Well until partway through the first episode of Prisoner, when the put him in the Captain Kangaroo jacket.) How could it not be?

But Ive seen most of this season, a bunch of last season and only a few of season two. I...dont have much of a desire to see season one though, that guy kinda rubs me the wrong way, i dunno.

Danger Man
The Prisoner
I actually pulled out my copy of The Official Prisoner Companion which featured many interviews with McGoohan. One article was indeed about the connections between The Prisoner and Danger Man. I thought that McGoohan was being deliberately coy about the issue, but now I realize he simply wasn't answering any more questions about it.
McGoohan, however, has always maintained that John Drake and Number Six have nothing in common. In a somewhat perplexing statement, he said about Number Six: "He was never called John Drake, he just happened to look like him." McGoohan has also claimed that, if possible, he would have preferred Number Six to be played by someone other than Patrick McGoohan, to avoid the inevitable connections between the two characters. Why has McGoohan remained so emphatic in his claim that Number Six is not John Drake?
The asnswer may have monetary overtones. If Number Six was indeed John Drake, the creators of Secret Agent (aka Danger Man) would have a financial interest in the use of John Drake's character in The Prisoner. They would certainly expect some sort of royalty.
And yet, there are a lot of similarities between Number Six and John Drake, so it's still kinda "draw yer own conclusions about it." One thing fa'sure--you'll never get the answer out of McGoohan...
