The Girl Who Was Death
I think it is safe to say, that although No.2 was still trying to gain the reason behind the Prisoner's resignation, at the very least expecting No.6 to give something away, The Girl Who Was Death is an enjoyable diversion from what has taken place, and that which is about to. The episode brings a form of light relief to the proceedings, I expect for No.6 as well as the television viewer, after having been put through the tortuous process of mind transference, and readies us for the ultimate test of 'Degree Absolute,' that is yet to come.
The Girl Who Is Death is pure escapism, a fairytale, but a dangerous fairytale none the less. It is an episode which would not be out of place as an episode of Danger Man, or indeed its quirky enough as an episode of The Avengers!
One further thing, the girls name in the episode is Death. But in the closing credits its Sonia, a name which is not once uttered in the episode itself, from which the name Sonia was obviously dropped, but not from the completed closing credits it would seem!
