Storm In A Teacup!
The other day I was contacted by email by a
fan of ‘the Prisoner’ who had been watching the series on blu-ray for the first
time. The comment was made when the Prisoner slams his fist down hard on the
bureaucrat's desk upsetting the cup in its saucer. They said that there are two
saucers, the bottom saucer one is cracked apart by the force of the fist
slammed down on the desk. This led to the question, why are there two saucers?
I explained that there are not two saucers,
only one, the other is a tea plate which would have held biscuits to go with
the cup of tea. And pointed this correspondent to a recent article I wrote on
this subject on my blog.
It would appear that even watching ‘the
Prisoner’ via the clarity of Blu-ray, does not help the viewer to a better
understanding of ‘the Prisoner’ series.
