Whereabouts is the landing stage mentioned by Number 2 in ‘The Schizoid Man’ “It’s just a quick flip in the helicopter to the landing stage, and the jet picks you up from there.” I suppose a “quick flip” would be about ten minutes away. As for picking up a jet from there, a landing stage is not a runway for aircraft, it’s a platform, usually a floating one, on to which passengers from a boat disembark or cargo is unloaded. I would suggest that’s where the milk, the ice cream, the potatoes, and aspirins are unloaded from a boat. Then flown to The Village by helicopter, or then again, why not cut out the helicopter and bring the supplies up the estuary by boat to The Village? That way it would be possible for Curtis to have left The Village by boat, providing the tide was in of course. Except in ‘The Schizoid Man’ that’s not possible, that fact the atmosphere there being very different to what it was elsewhere, meaning they are at
MGM film studios and not Portmeirion!
