Man in a Suitcase

Show Summary

Welcome to the Man in a Suitcase guide at TV.com.

Man in a Suitcase was filmed in and around Pinewood Studios and on location in London during 1966/7. A rough, tough adventure series, which, thanks to the strength, charisma and capability of the leading player, Texan method actor, Richard Bradford, still continues to enthral and entertain audiences today.

McGill is a no nonsense hero, an ex-CIA Agent unjustly accused of treason by his own people. Subsequently he is compelled to travel the world making his living in the harsh and sometimes terrifying world of a modern-day bounty hunter.

Man in a Suitcase was an ITC production for ITC World Wide.

The complete series is now available on DVD: from Network DVD in the UK and Umbrella DVDs in Australia.

  • Richard Bradford was born to play McGill! He gave him depth, strength, credibility and, in my opinion, he created the best cult TV action hero of them all!

    McGill wasn't a 'super hero' but in fact a man who sometimes had more integrity than those who employed him. He was loyal and would refuse higher offers made to him, taking only what he'd previously agreed on by whoever had hired him. He was a loner, an enigma, and this for me, helped keep the series/characterisation alive and intriguing! The shows could have downbeat endings - something almost unheard of then! Another realistic aspect in the production, was he didn't have the flashy cars or the dollybirds on each arm. Get the dvds and prepare to be entertained!moreless

    Recently bought the DVD set. I wish there had been more than one season. McGill, who is played by Richard Bradford, is a former CIA agent who is wrongly accused of treason and is force out of the service. With only a suitcase and a gun, McGill travels Europe using the only skill he knows-undercover espionage. Unlike many other like minded '60s shows, McGill is a rough and tumble, no nonsense character that makes the show realistic.moreless
