A Favourite Scene in The Prisoner

   From the moment Number 6 emerges from his cottage in 'Many Happy Returns,' to discover the Village deserted, to the moment he casts off aboard his Kon Tiki style raft.



  And in between waking up and casting off upon his voyage of discovery, the searching of the Village, the contruction of his sea-going raft by chopping down small trees, the emptying of oil drums into a drain, and the taking of photographic evidence of the Village.
   I suppose what makes this episode so interesting, is the fact that no word is uttered, not until well into the episode when Number 6 asks a young gypsy woman where is there a road?

Be seeing you
