|Studio(s): - MGM Borehamwood|
The production famously did a lot of location shooting at Sir William Clough-Ellis' Portmeirion estate in North Wales, over the course of a year. Patrick McGoohan was inspired to use the estate after filming Danger Man episodes there.
MGM Borehamwood stages, including Stages 6 and 7, were used for interiors, and sometimes the MGM backlot village set was used as a stand-in for Portmeirion, to save travelling costs.
