    Number 6 may well have had good reasons to regret his imprisonment. I have been of the opinion that life in The Village is something of a nightmare for the Prisoner. But what if it isn’t a nightmare, but a confirmation of that decision? It might be that the Prisoner is reassuring himself that given a second chance he would do it again. And yet, and yet Number 14, the doctor in ‘A B and c’ interpreted the repetitive action of the Prisoner handing in his letter of resignation over and over again on the wall screen, as an anguish pattern. It might be on the cards that the Prisoner’s resignation was causing him a some pain and distress. He might even be tormented by his act of resignation, living and reliving that moment in his mind, so much so that he actually regretted the decision he made. And probably, given a second chance, he wouldn’t do it again!

Be seeing you


  1. Hello David,
    this makes me wonder: what if he'd really decide not to do it again by the end of Fall Out? Would they take him back just the same? Or would it end the cycle?
    Reminds me of the film Triangle.

    Very kind regards,

    1. Hello Jana,
      I suppose it would all depends on why the Prisoner was taken to the Village in the first place. Wanting to know the reason behind the Prisoner's resignation is the catalyst for all the rest of the information inside No.6's head, and possibly not the actual reason for the Prisoner's abduction to The Village.
      I have always thought that it is the British who are behind The Village, and if that's the case, the Prisoner's resignation might have been the reason for his abduction to The Village, so that the information inside his head could be protected. I can't imagine that if it is the British, the Prisoner's own people, that they would need to extract the information inside No.6's head, as they would have that information anyway.....I think!

      Very kind regards
