Thought For The Day

    If Number One does indeed have the face of Number Six, perhaps the encounter of the Prisoner with the darker side of himself is the way to destroy a system of evil and oppression. But that clearly contradicts the literal storylines of the whole series, which demonstrates the elusiveness of power and the impossibility of one individual being able to control an entire social system - or destroy one. To my mind, the allegorical level, which I have never really been happy with, within 'the Prisoner,' should be consistent with the literal level, not contradict it.
