You Brought Me Back Here!

    It has often been remarked upon, the fact that two Number 2's were brought back to The Village for second terms of office. Those of Leo McKern and Colin Gordon. And yet there is really only evidence that one of those particular Number 2’s was allowed to leave and to be brought back to The Village for Decree Absolute, and he was none too happy about. In fact he was bloody annoyed! He told Number 1 on the telephone, that he can say what he likes, but it was he who brought him back to The Village. As for the other one, there is no evidence for him having left The Village. Indeed had ‘A B and C’ and ‘The General run consecutively, either one before the other, then there would have been no need for this Number 2 to have left The Village only to be brought back, as he was already there! There is however a third Number 2 to be put into the mix, he of ‘The Girl Who Was Death, brought back in order to take his place as a High Court Judge presiding over the trials of ’Fall Out.’ This as part of the final manipulation of the Prisoner-Number 6!
   It's strange that such Number Two's who have failed, although that is questionable in the one case, in their attempts to gain the reason behind Number 6's resignation, were given a second bite of the cherry so to speak. And yet in another case, he wasn’t, kept at arms length from Number 6, until he involved himself in the Speedlearn education experiment. Personally I would have thought that it would have been better to keep faith with the more successful Number 2. Sometimes, when considering the choice of person chosen as Number 2, it’s almost as though Number 1 wants them to fail. Especially Number 2 of ‘Hammer Into Anvil,’ who as a weak link in the chain of command was hung out to dry by Number 1, who must have known what was happening, yet lifted not a finger to help him. Assistance which when offered was thrown back in Number 1’s face. How could he have helped a man like that? ‘Hammer Into Anvil’ probably turned out to be a good exercise in the eyes of Number 1. To see how Number 6 would act when confronted by a professional sadist! Number 6 made it personal, the suicide of Number 73, and took out a long and calculated vengeance against Number 2. It may be supposed that Number 1 could have had Number 2 removed at any stage of ‘Hammer Into Anvil,’ but why do that when one had Nemesis to do it for him. And no doubt get enormous fun out of seeing Number 6 play on Number 2’s paranoia into the bargain.


Be seeing you
