Patrick McGoohan 'is' The Prisoner

  In my mind, in my mind the Prisoner has always been John Drake, because on a personal level that works for me. However I have to say that despite that, the identity of the Prisoner maybe as simple as that of Patrick McGoohan. After all Patrick McGoohan once played the role of a secret agent who goes by the name of John Drake. It is Patrick McGoohan's own date of birth, March 19th 1928, which is used for the Prisoner, as are some details of Patrick McGoohan's life in Once Upon A Time, that of his childhood, and having grown up going to work in a Bank.
   I like to think that John Drake is the Prisoner, but really he's Patrick McGoohan.
