A Symbolic Scene in Checkmate

    After the game of chess, Number 14 congratulates Number 6 on playing a good game. They walk then talk, and eventually they end up standing outside the bay window of a shop next the café. “Its like the game, you have to distinguish between the blacks and the whites.” But that doesn’t answer the question of the Peg Wooden doll, which is placed in a chair by a hand. Yes it’s a shop assistant simply dressing the window display, but just for a moment as Number 6 looks at the doll this with the sudden piece of incidental music, it appears to be symbolic of something. But I cannot think what. But it might be Patrick McGoohan playing mind games with us, and isn’t symbolic of anything at all, except perhaps to remind one of our childhood!

Be seeing you
