Ex-Number 2's

       Have you considered what happens to ex-Number 2's once they've been replaced? There is evidence of at least two 2’s who were allowed to leave The Village. One is observed to leave by helicopter, piloting the machine himself. The other Number 2 admitted that he had been brought back to The Village, and that’s what can also happen, they can be brought back for a second term of office, or to preside over three trials which could amount to the same thing.
   One Number 2 is witnessed, having returned to London, eventually returning into the fold of the Establishment with the Houses of Parliament via the Peers entrance. While it may be suspected that another was taken into care, taken to hospital and put in a bed on the psychiatric ward. As for the other Number 2’s, another may well have been admitted to hospital to have a surgeon operate on his stomach ulcer. However having written that, perhaps Number 2 might have made better use of the doctor-Number 14 {A B and C} in that she might have been able to prescribe acid-suppressing drugs, such as H2-receptor antagonists, thus preventing the need for surgery, and could lead to a cure. While other Number 2’s once their term of office was over, might well have been absorbed into The Village Administration, from which Number 2 might have been promoted. Although in one case we know that a Number 2 was originally abducted to The Village as a prisoner, because he said as much during his falling out in the final episode.
    “It has been my lot, in the past, to wield a not inconsiderable power. Nay I’ve had the ear of Statesmen, Kings and Princes of many lands. Governments have been swayed, policies defined, and revolutions nipped in the bud at a word from me in the right place and at a propitious time. Not surprising therefore that this community should find a use for me. Not altogether by accident that one day I should be abducted, and wake up here amongst you. What is deplorable is that I resisted for so short a time.”
   So regarding Number 2, who is to say which is which, how many of each, who came to The Village of their own free will, and who was abducted against it?

Be seeing you
