A Favourite Scene In The Prisoner


   In ‘Hammer Into Anvil’ when the two laboratory technicians, Number’s 252 {I think} and 243 are busy testing for whatever is written on those blank sheets Number 2 found in the Stoneboat. Number 2 is convinced there’s something written on them, words, figures, but there isn’t anything. They are simply what they appear to be, blank sheets of paper, and no matter how many tests they try, and how many times they put those blank sheets of paper through those tests, not one word or number will be revealed. Number 2 isn’t going to like the result of the tests, and someone is going to have to tell Number 2. And that responsibility lies squarely on Number 253’s shoulders. I sometimes think his colleague is pleased about that, that he isn’t the one to have to tell Number 2.

Be seeing you
