Thought For The Day
Ii is said that at the time, to have had both No.6's in 'The Schizoid Man' wearing identical piped blazers would have been too complicated for the television viewer. I thought Patrick McGoohan should have left it to the television viewer to make their own minds up about that. And in anycase I think McGoohan missed a trick here. In that there would have been a subtle way of distiinguishing between the two 6's. they could have worn identical blazers, but one could have worn the blazer with broken piping around the lapel, and the other 6 with continuous piping around the lapel! Because that does happen from time to time in other episodes of 'the Prisoner.'
