Thought for the day

    Can ‘the Prisoner’ shock anymore? Well only the first time around, because the second occasion you're ready for it; with ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ we learn that No.6 has not escaped the Village. In the way in which No.6 unmasks the mystery man, then turns him to face the camera, revealing 'C' as being No.2 in ‘A B and C’ for example. Another would be when  No.6 in ‘The Schizoid Man’ learns that "Susan.... did a year ago Number Six" that sort of thing can only work one, twice if you are a boy of twelve and have not seen the series for almost ten years!
