The answer is not at the bottom of a glass! Mind you I suppose when dealing with a series like ‘the Prisoner’ it’s as good a place as any to look! Perhaps that’s where he found the idea for that most surreal of sports Kosho? If he did well all hats off to him, much better than the original idea of Judo. Perhaps he found Number 1 at the bottom of the glass. I suppose it’s a sign of one’s over-sized ego, or monomania for a man to make himself Number 1. But then logically who else could it have been? Yes there are those “masters” we hear so much about, even those delegates of the Assembly could be a collective one. But like the end of any good thriller, there has to be the final confrontation between the hero and the villain, and ‘the Prisoner’ is no different. It’s just so happens that in this case, both the hero and the villain are one!
Be seeing you
