Smoking In The Village!

    Although we never really see smoking in The Village, apart from Number 6 trying to smoke a cigar of his favourite brand, the fact that there are some Russian cigarettes in a box, Number 6 lights Alison’s cigarette, and The Man With No Name rolls, and smokes, a cigarette using brown liquorice paper, it must have occurred. When Number 36 attempts to buy a bag of sweets from a kiosk in ‘It’s Your Funeral,’ when her weekly credit allowance had been all used up, originally it was a packet of cigarettes she was trying to buy!
   Alison was a smoker and must have bought her cigarettes from either a kiosk, or the General Store, because on the wall just inside the door there is a cigarette machine. And Number 6 was supposed to smoke a particular favourite brand of cigar. Perhaps as being their “prize prisoner,” as Number 2 once described him, they indulged Number 6 by importing his favourite brand of cigar specially for him even though we never see him actually smoking them!

  1. Outside the Village, No. 48 seems to be smoking a cigar in the trailer as he dances with No. 2. Perhaps he obtained it from No. 6!
    Also, the Girl Who Was Death has a cigarette in a cigarette holder in the pub - it wouldn't be allowed these days!

    1. Hello ZM72,
      Good to hear from you.
      Yes 48 is smoking a cigar or cheroot.
      As for the Girl Who Was Death today she would have to go and stand outside in the car park to smoke her cigarette!
