Thought For The Day

    Yesterday's Teabreak Teaser - Why did Number 6 call Roland Walter Dutton as a character witness? It was suggested by someone that they are dead already. Well not quite, although there was a termination order against Roland Walter Dutton, but as it stands, Dutton might as well be dead. He has certainly been left “brain dead” by the doctor’s latest experiment to gain information from Dutton, information that simply was not there. Dutton had given all the information he knew. Although Number 6 had the idea that if Dutton was scheduled to die, the Prisoner saw him better fitted than himself to say the things that needed to be said. After all Dutton had nothing to lose.
   There is a saying, "Never speak ill of the dead." But of course in 'Dance of the Dead,’ its the other way around, seeing as its Roland Walter Dutton who's as good as dead, not the Prisoner-Number 6. If one looks at it that way, then Number 6 was using the dead twice. Once to try and send a message to someone, anyone in his world, and then to use Dutton to say the things that needed to be said, because he was going to die anyway!

Be seeing you
