Do You Know The Way?
On the day of his arrival in The Village, the Prisoner stands in front of an electronic information board. He’s about to press the button marked 1, when suddenly a taxi pulls up.
"Where to sir?" the female oriental driver asks.
"Take me to the nearest town" the Prisoner requests.
"Oh we're only the local service" the driver replies.
"Take me as far as you can" says the Prisoner.
Well the driver certainly does that, up the road one way, and back the other way, down the streets and back again. Along the one way, and back the same way twice, and taking the longest way round just to get back where you started from! But at least it didn't cost him anything, and the viewer did get a grand tour of The Village. But in Fee for All the taxi ride was somewhat different as Number 6 was being interviewed by the reporter No.113. For as the interview had commenced, the taxi slowly drove along the street down towards the Town Hall, passing a wall and buildings on the left. Yet as the interview progresses the taxi can be seen passing those very same buildings a second time. Well that street isn't very long down to the Town Hall, and the taxi would have arrived before the interview had been concluded otherwise.
Be seeing you
