A Favourite Scene In Dance of The Dead

   When Number 6 wakes up after spending the night on the beach, and finds the body supposedly washed up on the beach. The body could have been placed there for Number 6 to find. He duly goes through the dead man’s pockets, and opens the wallet and takes out the photograph of a couple sat by the pool and fountain in the Piazza. There is also a letter, and three raffle tickets. Later in another scene on the Outlook, Number 6 takes the wallet from his pocket, and looks at the photographs again. Is he wondering about the couple in the photograph, and how it is that a body of the man washed up on the shore has a picture in his pocket of a couple photographed in The Village? But of course the dead man Number 6 found, is the man pictured in the photograph, and by the manner of his attire, probably on the day of his arrival in The Village. There is another story here, who is the young woman pictured with the man, and who took the photograph? Number 6 might have been curious enough as to find the woman, to tell her that he had found the body of her dead husband, or boyfriend. Otherwise why does he seem curious about the photograph? There is also a strip of negative film in the wallet, perhaps the negative of the photograph. Perhaps the couple in the photograph arrived in The Village together, as she is not wearing a badge. They look as though they are on holiday, and just asked someone to take their photograph. Perhaps they came willingly, in the same way of the Professor and his wife. That they came to The Village for a reason, and yet the man in the photograph was found dead. So then what happened to the woman in the photograph?
