Thought For The Day

  After handing in his letter of resignation, the Prisoner returned to his home to collect two suitcases, his passport, and an airline ticket. The question is, when did the Prisoner purchase that airline ticket? At least by the day before he resigned, which makes his act of resignation one of premeditation rather than a spur of the moment thing. 
    In ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling’ the Prisoner is returned to
London the day before he was to have resigned his job. Sometime after, he was to have attended his fiancées birthday party, that of Janet Portland, which is what was supposed to have happened had the Prisoner not been abducted to The Village. But then would it? I don't think the Prisoner had any intention of attending his fiancée’s birthday party, simply because of what we witness in the opening sequence. The evidence of the Prisoner's passport and airline ticket is compelling, indicating that he was on his way to London Airport.
    It is highly unlikely that the Prisoner intended to go and see Janet Portland before he left, because the evidence suggests that he had not even told her about his resigning his job. Janet Portland had expected to see him at her birthday party. What’s more, he had cynically accompanied her the previous evening to her last dress fitting for the party, knowing very well that he was not going to be there. 

Be seeing you
