One egg or two? What was it Number 2 once said, oh yes, how perfectly domestic. Before Number 6 had his breakfast brought to him on a tray by a housemaid. But it seems by the time of ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ Number 6 has lost that privilege, and has to cook his own breakfast. Well except the time Number 8 took pity on him. The trouble with this is it breaks up the continuity in the screening order. Because going by the library order of ‘the Prisoner’ both episodes ‘Dance of The Dead.’ And ‘Free For All’ both have Number 6’s breakfast brought to him on a tray, and precede ‘Chimes.’ I have wondered what would cause Number 6 to lose that privilege, but of course there is no way of knowing. Mind you, there would have been no room for this charming little breakfast scene had breakfast already arrived!
Be seeing you
