THE PRISONER

Patrick McGoohan (number 6) escapes from the island in a Dowty Turbocraft.

The Dowty was owned and driven by Brian Axworthy, who doubled for Patrick McGoohan during some of the escape sequence.

The series was a rather unusual tv series, but it had some great classics in it, which are now all collectors items, including the Mini Moke.
