Kind Hearted No.6!
Regarding Number 36 in ‘Its Your Funeral,’ whether she is the same character as Martha in ‘Many Happy Returns' or not, it would seem that Number 6 has a soft touch for “little old ladies,” as well as damsels in distress. I don’t somehow think Number 36 could be described as a damsel in distress, although she is in distress, because her weekly allowance has been all used up and so cannot buy her sweets. 36 cannot go a day without her sweets. Originally the script had cigarettes as being something Number 36 could not go a day without, and not sweets. And before there was 36, there came Number 38 during ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ to whom Number 6 bought her tapestry with the special merit award of 2,000 free Work Units. This because he thought he would not be needing them, seeing as he was about to escape!
