Number 6 has his comfortable cell, a "home from home" with all modcons. Number 2, well he has a room somewhere beneath the Village. We know this because in 'A B and C' Number 2 rises up in his chair through the floor into his office in the Green Dome. And in 'It's Your Funeral Number 2 is seen in his pyjamas and dressing gown in
the Control Room. So if you have wondered where the butler, Number 2's personal gentleman lives, well it's pictured here, in the annex to the Green Dome. It makes sense for the butler to be on hand at any time of day, especially when he's had to cook breakfast for not only Number 2, but anyone who is invited to breakfast, or for coffee or tea.
It's a strange situation, when the servant has more comfortable accommodation than the master. But then I suppose no-one knows just how long any Number 2 will be staying in the Village. That all depends on his or her success, the length of term of office.
