In The Kitting Out Room The Colonel, the RAF Group Captain, and Number 6 make final preperations in the Kitting out room for the long flight to RAF Gibraltar, while outside a milk float having arrived at the aerodrome, is driven to the Kitting Out Room and stops outside, then the milkman gets out to sort through his milk crates. Just a minute, there’s something not right here!
Here is the milk float just arriving outside the Kitting Out Room, after which the milkman gets out, and then we see the Colonel and Number 6 in the Kitting Out Room. But they have already left the Kitting Out Room as the milk float is arriving, look through the back of the milk float.
That’s Number 6 walking towards the Gloster Meteor jet aircraft, with the Colonel following behind! So how can they still be in the Kitting Out Room? This is either another case of doubles in ‘the Prisoner,’ in which case Number 6 and the Colonel might well meet themselves as they leave the Kitting Out Room. Or perhaps the scene, having become caught up in a twist in the time continuum, is about to play itself out again. On the other hand there could be a more mundane explanation, that there’s been another cock-up in the film editing suite!
Be seeing you
