Citizens in The Village live in a society where there is no privacy. Surveillance is everywhere, and Number 2 might argue that it’s for the good and safety of the community. Each cottage has a number, that number is accompanied by the word “Private.” Which is ironic really, as there is no “private” anywhere, not even in Number 6’s bathroom! This is demonstrated in ‘Dance of The Dead,’ the camera in the bathroom being behind the mirror. And to take that idea one step further, when Number 6 is taking a shower, or indeed anyone else for that matter, male or female at their daily ablutions etcetera, do Observers turn the surveillance camera off?
Be seeing you
