Thought For The Day

    ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling’ is the name of the episode, and when they eventually met one year after ZM73’S abduction to The Village, he told Janet that he needed her faith. But did Janet Portland remain faithful to her fiancé?
   Just over a year before, ZM73 left a receipt for a roll of film with the proprietor of ‘World Camera’, a shop along the Victoria Colonnade in London. He left the receipt with Janet, which he collected from her at her birthday party. And yet when ZM73 went to the photographic camera shop the transparencies had already been signed for by a Mister Carmichael. The proprietor of the shop looked a little nervous, but explained that it was a stupid clerical error by one of his juniors who had handed over ZM73’s transparencies in mistake for the number. It was pure carelessness, mistaking the figure 0 1 and 1 0, needless to say the junior assistant was not with them very long. And Mister Carmichael returned the transparencies once he had discovered the mistake, so no apparent damage had been done. But the question remains, did Mister Carmichael have a receipt of his own, or did Janet hand the receipt over to her father on request? Or was it enough for Mister Carmichael, who presumably worked for Sir Charles Portland, to show his security identity for the proprietor of the photographic shop to simply hand over the transparencies? And how did they know about the photographs in the first place? Perhaps they had ZM73 under surveillance, hence the camera in the mirror, and other parts of ZM73’s house. “What was that, sounded like a click, something mirror?”

Be seeing you
