The idea of ‘Living In Harmony.’ Well, when you are in the sort of situation, your ears are always open, and if you hear somebody say something, or you have a conversation about something, it turns into another idea.
If I remember it correctly, Patrick was playing squash with Frank Maher and Frank said in a strange moment: "Why don't we do a Western?" So I sat down and wrote an idea for it based upon - in parallel -with ‘the Prisoner.’ And then I got a guy who was ambitious to be a writer, Ian Rakoff, and we started to write and then he had to go and do something, and I sort of wrote it. I was quite excited by it because when I finished it, I had the idea of life-sized photographs and I injected that afterwards, after I finished writing it. So I was quite pleased with that.
‘The Girl Who Was Death,’ that was an idea that I sketched out some long time ago before for ‘Danger Man.’ There was a period where we weren't doing very much, so out of boredom I wrote this outline. Then, when we were searching for more ideas for ‘the Prisoner,’ I got it out and had a look at it, and thought; "Well, we could use it for the Prisoner." It was out of context, in a way, but I thought it could be a lot of fun. And that's what I was meaning earlier - you could put stories into ‘the Prisoner’ and make them work for the series.
