When Patrick McGoohan first hit UK screens starring in Danger Man in 1960 audiences were struck by his fiery persona and on-screen charisma. By the time he took on the role of 'Number 6' in cult show The Prisoner his fanbase was global, Hollywood beckoned and many of the actors and directors that he worked with regarded him as enigmatic genius. But who was this man who had worked variously as a truck driver, chicken farmer and bank clerk before filling in for a colleague at the Sheffield Repertory Theatre and launching a hugely successful acting career simply by chance? In Not a Number Rupert Booth reveals the true character of a man known for his peculiar offscreen behaviour as much for his acting, directing and writing abilities. Why was he so puritanical? Why was he so incensed by the prospect of fame? A timely exploration of the man whose declaration 'I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, de-briefed or numbered'continues to resonate with audiences decades after it was first uttered with such conviction.
