They say that each of us have a double somewhere, but for No.6 to have a pair of doubles would seem a bit too much to believe.
The use of the ape mask is said to demonstrate evolution of man, something like that of the film 2001, now there's a film ending I have never been able to understand. No, don't tell me, I'd rather live in ignorance!!!!!!! By the way, did you know that the shot of the Universe seen in The Alternative Chimes of Big Ben, was taken from the film 2001? The film was being shot at MGM Studios at the same time as the Prisoner.
But back to doubles for a moment. I've been to Prisoner conventions, portrayed No.6 to the point that I've become the Prisoner, and have been taken for Patrick McGoohan on many, many occasions. But if anyone said to me today "Are you Patrick McGoohan?" I'd say "God I hope not, he's dead!" No offence Pat.
This is me, Mister X at a Prisoner Convention. The first time that the boxing scene from The Girl Who Was Death was re-enacted. Be seeing you
