The Prisoner Comment
Tony Sloman, film Librarian on ‘the Prisoner’ once said that to his reckoning the two episodes ‘Hammer Into Anvil’ and ‘It’s Your Funeral’ are two episodes which do not feature an element of brainwashing or mind tampering. That is certainly true of ‘Hammer Into Anvil,’ and yet in ‘It’s Your Funeral,’ there is a drug used on Number 50-Monique, one of the new super strength moprobomates. The drug remains dormant until triggered by the nervous system, then it releases itself to the desired quantities to produce, instant tranquillity or temporary oblivion. But that might not be considered to be a mind tampering drug.
