Thought For The Day

 Patrick McGoohan's The Prisoner
   He wanted the Prisoner to be a family series, one which his daughters could watch. Hence the lack of Pat McGoohan's romantic involvement in either 'Danger Man' or 'the Prisoner,' why he would not kiss Nadia Gray in the romantic night-time scene during 'The Chimes of Big Ben,' when No.6 and Nadia looked to be getting close to each other. He didn't want sex to be part of the Prisoner, yet McGoohan didn't seem to be so choosey when it came to violence or the use of drugs in the series!
  McGoohan didn't want television viewers seeing sex or romance in his series 'The Prisoner.' Yet he didn't mind someone being beaten up, mostly No.6, or No.6 seen to be doing the beating up. Or to show the use of drugs on village inmates, or to suggest human experimentation, not so squeamish about those topics, was he?
