Rafferty

Show Summary

Patrick McGoohan (Secret Agent, The Prisoner) returned to series television with "Rafferty", after two memorable guest star performances on "Columbo". McGoohan played a retired army doctor who is adjusting to civilian life. Dr. Sid Rafferty was cantankerous, independent, idiosyncratic and a brilliant diagnostician. Rafferty was a precursor to House, and McGoohan would have been a blast as Dr. House. The producer of the show was talented Jerry Thorpe (Kung Fu, Harry O, The Lazarus Syndrome, Our House). Thorpe always picked strong, somewhat atypical series leads. Thorpe was one of the best series drama producers of the 1970's. McGoohan was superb as Rafferty, although it was a little startling how much he had aged since "The Prisoner". But he was still an extremely attractive middle-aged man, sort of reminiscent of David Janssen. McGoohan directed one episode of "Rafferty", but he wasn't a producer as he was on "The Prisoner". McGoohan was never happy with the quality of "Rafferty", and he never did another series. But "Rafferty" was a fine effort, nothing to be ashamed of. John Getz played Dr. Rafferty's young associate, but was later replaced by talented Michael C. Gwynne.
