“Back to the beginning!”
It would seem that for Number 2, ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ is a cyclical episode, seeing as he wasn’t any better off at the end as he was at the beginning!
This particular Number 2 was only employed to see that Number 6’s escape of The Village went ahead with no interference. Had the plan worked, meaning that Post 5 had had his wristwatch set at the right time and thereby not have synchronised with the chimes of Big Ben, would the plan have succeeded, with Number 6 actually telling the Colonel the reason behind his resignation. Would then the Colonel have told Number 2? It might have depended on who wanted the information in the first place and why. However, it may be supposed that Number 2 would have been told, because it was he who asked the question in the first place, “Why did he resign?” Why? Because Number 6’s file did need bringing up to date, that being the one piece of information missing from it.
Be seeing you
