No.6 Would Be Taken For Mad!

    With regard to recent comments about the possibility that ‘the Prisoner’ is all in ZM73’s mind {for want of a better name}, a dream, perhaps even a figment of his imagination. There are certain episodes which could fall into that category with ‘A B and C’ being a natural choice. But it doesn’t work when it comes to an episode like ‘The Chimes of Big Ben.’ That would mean, as Number 6, he was dreaming the plotting of his escape, as well as his own downfall. He might be under the illusion that he’s fooling Number 2, but he would be dreaming that Number 2 knows exactly what he’s up to, counter-plotting his escape if you like. As well as this, he introduced Nadia as a plant, and Karel who gave him the watch set at the wrong time, and set his arrival back in The Village instead of the Colonel’s office in London. And the fact that his watch said eight as Big Ben strikes that very hour would have come as no surprise to him. So in the end, what would be the point?

Be seeing you
