A Favourite Scene In It’s Your Funeral

   Number 6 having left the Café in ‘It’s Your Funeral, he is now on his way to the kiosk to buy a copy of The Tally Ho, a bar of soap, and a bag of sweets. The scene is so Village, well, continental, or international if you prefer, seeing people eating outside which was not the norm in Britain at the time.
    The café isn’t the same café we see in ‘Arrival,’ and ‘Checkmate,’ this Café must be the improved café facilities which Number 2, who is due for retirement has organized. But when exactly was that? After all we first see this new café in ‘The General, which is 5 episodes prior to ‘It’s Your Funeral.’ So on that basis should ‘It’s Your Funeral’ appear before ‘The General’ in the series screening order? But if Number Two, who is about to retire, has been the permanent Number 2 {all other Number 2’s being interim dealing with other matters} who has been quietly working behind the scenes for the good of both The Village and its community, then it doesn’t really matter where this episodes sits in ‘the Prisoner’ series!

Be seeing you
