Playing with Lighters!

    Curtis was dead according to Number 6. So having reported this to Number 2, having given the password Schizoid Man, Number 6 simply changed blazers and took on the persona of Curtis.
   Later having reported to Number 2, he was instructed to go and see Alison, as she might have some insight into Number 6’s motivations. So there he was, Number 6 impersonating Curtis, while playing with his cigarette lighter in his pocket. Alison took a cigarette from a cigarette box, and instantly Number 6 produced the cigarette lighter.
    “Silly playing with lighters. I’ll probably start a fire one day.”
    It makes one wonder if this is some kind of reference to John Drake. He was always playing with cigarette lighters, one lighter in particular. It contained a micro camera, and every time Drake needed to take a photograph he had to light a cigarette. Well otherwise it would have been a bit of a giveaway to keep clicking his lighter without lighting a cigarette! What John Drake wouldn’t have given for a mobile phone with an in-built camera!

Be seeing you

    Unless he met a co-operative Dr Who in the Village, who could provide him with the time travel and then the technology, Drake would be none the wiser. You don't miss what you never had.
