There Is No Escape!

    A particular article stated that McGoohan intended the door of the Prisoner’s house in London in ‘Fall Out’ to represent the fact that the individual can never attain freedom. That when the door opens automatically on its own, we know there is someone inside waiting to start the whole thing all over again. There is no escape.   Well I thought that it was the Prisoner who started it all over again. That the house of 1 Buckingham Place is Number 1’s town house, and by the door opening automatically it is an indication that The Village is anywhere and everywhere. Besides ZM73 {for want of a better name} never enters the house, it’s the butler who goes inside, after ZM73 has driven off. And when he returns to his house after having handed in his letter of resignation, he has to unlock his front door, and open it manually. There no electronic operation of the door. But whichever way you look at it, it’s all in the mix, and there is still no escape.

Be seeing you
