The Prisoner has been described as science fiction, although the series can fall into a number of different genres, science fiction on the face of it does not seem to quite dovetail. And when it does it does only in ‘Fall out’ because of the rocket, and the Guardian could be seen as an alien arrived somehow from another planet, and is kept prisoner in order to do its captors bidding. One science fiction scene might well be when after the rocket had lifted off out of its silo, the Guardian is seen in what looks like an alien environment, a glimpse of life on another, if inhospitable looking planet.
Be seeing you
