Quote For The Day

    “I'm Going To Escape And Come Back.”
    “Come back?”
    “Escape, Come Back. Wipe This Place Off The Face Of The Earth, Obliterate It, And You With It.”
                            {Number 2 and Number 6 - The Chimes of Big Ben}

    So, simply to escape The Village is not good enough for Number 6. He's going to escape and come back, wipe it off the face of the Earth, obliterate it. Well at least he was able to keep part of that promise. He did escape in ‘Many Happy Returns,’ and he did come back. I couldn’t count ‘The Chimes of Big Ben,’ because Number 6 didn’t actually escape during that episode. Well I suppose he did escape The Village, but he was always in the clutches of the enemy. And it was they who brought him back to The Village.
    ‘Fall Out’ did see Number 6 escape, what’s more he made it all the way back to
England. And in a way it could be said that he destroyed The Village, although it wasn’t obliterated off the face of the Earth, he caused its evacuation by the launching of that missile. I suppose that if either the Russians, Americans, and the British had retaliated, then The Village would have been wiped off the Earth three fold! Then think of the fallout! But as it is The Village was left intact, that’s because any day then, the Prisoner was set to return there having handed in his letter of resignation. Cue dark clouds, cue thunder, cue the long deserted runway {road}, cue Lotus Seven, cue the Prisoner………….!

Be seeing you
