Teabreak Teaser

    If we are supposed to believe that the observers do see and hear everything, as stated by an interim No.2 of It's Your Funeral, why is it then, that the fight between No.6 and No.12-Curtis was not reported by an observer?



  1. Perhaps they thought they were watching an almost equally baffling TV series called 'Twin' Peaks?

    But seriously...the fight (in which Frank Maher suffered a real punch from McGoohan and subsequently didn't have to put his hand in his pocket for drinks that evening!) is over far too quick for it to be picked up and reported. Even if it was, I'm sure the Observers would be just as baffled as to the victor in the same way that an audience with Tommy Cooper would be equally baffled by "Bottle, jar - jar, bottle!"

  2. Hi Steve,

    I like 'Twin Peaks,' did so right from the time it was first screened, very Prisoneresque.

    Yes, perhaps the Observers would have been, certainly 'Rover' made the wrong choice, but then it was the right choice as Curtis found it difficult to give the password correctly, and then he 'ran for it!'. And I recall Frank telling the story of getting punched by McGoohan during that fight scene. I liked Fank Maher, a gentleman he was.
