The chessboard! In the original series of 'the Prisoner,' there is a great play on the game of chess. So what The Village needs is a chessboard, and chess has a great formality, it has a sense of organisation and logic, and you think someone is pulling the strings somewhere when you see the size of the chessboard that people can stand on. And it is as though, with the chessboard in the above picture, that it is another working of the same dream, but many years on, somehow forgotten in the mists of time. Such is the idea of the production designer for THEPRIS6NER Michael Pickwoad.
