Quote For The day

    "Depends on whose side you're on."
                                          {New No.2 - Arrival}
    No.6 tells the new No.2 that he's on our side, so the Prisoner-No.6 works for the administration behind The Village!
   Certainly by the end of ‘The Chimes of Big Ben,’ No.6 learned which side runs The Village, his own side! Perhaps not by the same British Governmental department for whom the Prisoner once worked, but a department who can have both the Colonel and Fortheringay seconded to The Village. Certainly it would seem that No.6 can no longer trust his ex-colleagues. He is a man alone, and yet this lesson learned appears to have been forgotten by the time the Prisoner manages to escape The Village in ‘Many Happy Returns,’ because just as soon as possible No.6 goes running back to his ex-colleagues, and into the hands of both the Colonel, and Thorpe. Probably because there is nowhere else for the Prisoner to go in order to get the answers to his questions. Unless he goes elsewhere that is, and I’m sure the Russians would have been very interested to learn about The Village!
   And so it is that even as the Colonel and Thorpe stand watching their ex-colleague fly off into the wide blue yonder, that he’s already on his way back to The Village!
   And so for a third time, when the Prisoner finds himself in trouble, his mind wrongly housed in the Colonel's body in ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling,’ he goes back for a third time to seek the help from old friends and colleagues. Will he never learn, that ex-colleagues are not ones to be trusted?
   Footnote; the Prisoner was said to have worked for Sir Charles Portland and that of his department. But apparently not so the Colonel, as when brought face to face with the Colonel, Sir Charles failed to recognise him!

Be seeing you
