Karaoke Night At The Cat And Mouse

   'Once, long ago, there was a man who made a tv show.
Spent, all his savings every penny, so that we would know.
But this poor man had few friends,
and his boss wouldn't pay him so,
I thought a way for him to escape.
I I I I helped Patrick McGoohan escape...............................

Now you can watch the Video by Ed Ball and The Times 'I helped Patrick McGoohan escape' by clicking on the link below. If of course the link doesn't work, then go to YouTube and type in I helped Patrick McGoohan escape.



  1. Hi David
    I’ve always been fascinated with scenes that were cut from the series, particularly this one. I wonder what he was singing – do you know? Perhaps it was Please Release Me, Say I’m Your Number One, I am the One and Only, or even I Will Survive! Ha, Ha!
    Wouldn’t it be great if a copy of the original episode still existed somewhere?

    1. Hi Nadia,
      Oh that's a very good comment, and most amusing.
      As far as I know Number 6 was supposed to have been giving an electoral speech to those people who are wearing white No.2 rosettes.
      Yes it would be great if original scenes like this one still existed somewhere, but most likely were all swept up off the cutting room floor. It was only by chance that the first cuts of 'Arrival' and 'The Chimes of Big Ben' were saved.

      Very best regards
