The Prisoner

    Does the Prisoner-No.6 own the fixtures and fittings, as well as the personal possessions in his cottage? The fixtures and fittings, as well as the decorations perhaps not, as it’s unlikely he owned those back in his home in London. He had leased the house, which still had 6 months to run, therefore it’s quite on the cards that he leased the house fully furnished. As for No.6’s personal possessions, that’s a different matter, all depends on whether or not he owned the paintings, ornaments and knick-knacks, like that statuette which should have been gilt and not sliver. We cannot be sure whether or not he owned the television set. Certainly No.6 doesn’t look like a man who would load himself down with too many personal possessions. His Lotus Seven is a personal possession of course. As a matter of fact, while he lives in The Village he appears to own few personal possessions, and that might have been the case back in London. But back in The Village, did No.6 own that Le Corbusier chaise longue, as well as that trendy chrome over-head lamp? We don’t see those in his study back in London! And there’s a question mark over the record player seen in ‘Hammer Into Anvil,’ we haven’t seen that before, but it looks like that could be a personal possession of No.6’s. But I wonder where he kept it? In the bottom of the wardrobe perhaps!

Be seeing you
