Thought For The Day
Today English has become an International language, spoken in countries all around the world. But that was not the case in the 1960's. Imagine how a non-English speaking person might feel, having been brought to the Village, unable to speak English, unable to make himself or herself understood. Number 2 would need an interpreter!
I know that in Colony Three of 'Danger Man' the language is English. But Colony Three is supposed to be a typical Englsih town called Hamden, where agents are trained to be Englsih, so that Englsih is their first language. But people are brougtht to the Village for other reasons. It just seems peculiar that everyone has Englsih as their first language!
I'll be seeing you
