Busy Potter?

    “It’s our form of Siberia!”
                                {Potter – The Girl Who Was Death}
    It is generally speaking the case that we put people we know, or have met, made the acquaintance of, into our dreams and stories. Therefore it is reasonable enough for Number 6 to make Number 2 Professor Schnipps and Number 10 {technically Number 2’s first female assistant} as The Girl, Schnipps daughter in his fairytale. And then there’s Potter, Mister X’s contact man. No doubt he’s there because Number 6 encountered Potter, manager of the Labour Exchange, on the day of his arrival in The Village. Thereby remembering a previous encounter in ‘Danger Man – Koroshi.’
    I don’t know how much work Potter did whilst manager of the Labour exchange, he didn’t seem to be that busy. But he was eventually promoted as assistant to Number 2 in ‘The Chimes of Big Ben,’ and seemed to have even less to do, ending up walking the floor of the Control Room, as Number 22 did in ‘It’s Your Funeral.’ Not that Number 2 needed an assistant, he seemed a capable administrator, after all he only had to oversee that Number 6 managed to escape The Village with Nadia unhindered.
    So Potter, working in The Village, well why not, after all both the Colonel and Fotheringay were there as well, suggesting to Number 2 that there are methods {against Number 6} they hadn’t used yet, and against an old colleague!


Be seeing you
