A Favourite Scene In the Prisoner
When in 'Arrival' the Prisoner having failed to get a taxi to take him to the nearest town, but only to arrive back where he started, goes to the General Store to buy a map of the area.
Number 19 or is it Number 56 because his numbered badge keeps changing in the scene, does his best to help the customer. First by producing a colour map, much more expensive, than a black and white map. But both show the same thing, only with the colour map which is larger. A larger map, not a bigger area as required by the Prisoner. But there is no call for such maps!
Another favourite scene comes in 'Hammer Into Anvil,' when Number 6 goes to buy a small notebook. However by this time Number 19 has been replaced by Number 12, a weasely type of character.
