Postcard From The Village
Have you ever been to Portmerion, sat there in the comfort of your cottage, watching 'the Prisoner' on the hotel's video channel, watching Number 6's exploits in the Village, then you look out of the window to see the Village there, outside. I have, and the experience was a surreal one, as looking away from the television as citizens were parading around the Free Sea and fountain, it was almost as though Number 6 himself could come walking passed on his way to the Labour Exchange in 'Arrival.' But of course he didn't, yet after watching 'the Prisoner' I was able to step out into his Village, to follow in his footsteps.
