When I first watched the Prisoner as a boy of twelve years of age in 1967, I was immediately hooked by the series. So was gripped by Arrival, and after the failed attempt by No.6 to escape, I wanted to see more. And after The Chimes of Big Ben, there was no doubt in my mind whatsoever that it was some department in British Military Intelligence which was behind the village. Both the presence of the Colonel and Fotheringay were proof enough of that for me. And by the time of Many Happy Returns, I was convinced that the Prisoner-No.6 had finally escaped, and was deflated by the fact that he hadn't!
Be seeing you
