Wheels Within The Wheel!
In the way that ‘the Prisoner’ series is cyclical, commencing and ending with a clash of thunder, a long deserted runway. A green and yellow nosed Lotus 7 looming large out of the distance towards the camera, together with the determined look on the face behind the wheel. So ‘Many Happy Returns’ is a cyclical episode within the series, in that having escaped, Number 6 ends up where he began, back in The Village. As with ‘A B and C,’ another cyclical episode, which both begins and ends with the bleeping of a large curved, over-sized red telephone. It could be said that ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ is also cyclical, not in a visionary way, but in the way that Number 2 is no more forward with Number 6 than he was at the outset……..back to the beginning!
