The Therapy Zone

Danger Man
   It was once written in an article that perhaps the Prisoner might not have resigned if he had such responsibilities as a wife and family to support. Well seeing as danger was an attraction for John Drake, that danger was his stock in trade, and judging the kind of work that he did, it seems pretty unlikely that John Drake would have married in the first place, so when it came to Janet Portland, {fictionally speaking of course} she came as a bit of a shock really. Being engaged to Janet Portland might have been an indication that John Drake might have had the thought of settling down. Janet may well have put pressure upon him to give up his job for a position a little more less dangerous, an office job perhaps. But then if that was the case, where was he going in such a hurry after handing in his letter of resignation that day? 
 
Janet Portland
   Had the Prisoner managed to get away before they came for him, the pair of Undertakers with their hearse and coffin, to disappear somewhere in the world. I wonder if his fiancé Janet Portland would have been brought to the village, in the same way No.73 was, so as to help find her husband?........ Makes you think doesn't it. That the village administration is not as infallible as we are given to think. Seeing as how one man can evade capture so much that his wife has to be brought to the village, and even then all she could tell them was that her husband was "He's still over there" "Where?" "Oh somewhere there. He had some work to finish." This poses the question, just how long would Janet have held out? Mind you having just written that, how could Janet tell them something which she doesn't know. After all I get the impression that her fiancé was doing a runner without the intention of taking her with him. Without even saying goodbye to her!

Many Happy Returns, I wondered if readers have noticed that tree No.6 chops down isn't a complete tree. When the tree is felled it falls like a log, and not at all like a tree at all. I mean the top of the tree has been lobbed off previous! Now I wonder why No.6 would climb the tree and chop off the top first? I mean he didn't do that when he felled that tree during ‘The Chimes of Big Ben!’

    What are work units worth - Nothing? You tell that to No.26 who can't go a day without her sweets! Has she been conditioned to have a sweet-tooth, then to take that sweet privilege away from her? Shouldn't think so. I mean she's an old woman, the once housemaid to Mrs Butterworth who brought Martha with her to The Village. Then Mrs Butterworth went and left The Village, but left poor old Martha in The Village all alone. I wonder how our diminutive friend the Butler took to Martha moving into his little annex to the Green Dome. He was put out of a job, our diminutive friend wouldn't have taken to Martha at all, so perhaps he was given a little holiday. Because by the time of the next episode, ‘Dance of the Dead,’ the Butler has been reinstated to his rightful position.

Be seeing you
