It is said that Number 6 is fighting against society, or the bureaucratic system, and I suppose symbolically that is what he is doing. But to my mind, he’s rebelling against his false imprisonment. I mean if you can’t chuck up a job things have come to a pretty pass. And yet Number 6 didn’t resign from an every day, run of the mill job. I presume he had been a secret agent working for M9, it should have been MI9, but for some reason they dropped the Intelligence. Mind you he did start out working for NATO Intelligence, that’s when he was an American with a terrible American accent. It wasn’t until later in his career that he changed, became British and then went to work for M9. But all good things come to an end one way or another. And he became disillusioned with the kind of work he was having to perform. He became fed up with the repetitiveness of it all, and so he resigned and woke up one day to find himself in The Village! Well he only had himself to blame, thought he was being clever you see. But in the end it was both his success and his downfall, because he made himself a prisoner. It might have been easier for him if he had answered one simple question, then he could have unburdened himself, why did he resign?
Be seeing you
