The Therapy Zone

    What was behind the Prisoner known as Number 6’s resignation? What reason could he have had? He was after all engaged to the boss’s daughter, perhaps through that marriage he was looking to better his professional prospects. So what went wrong? He certainly hadn’t told his fiancée Janet Portland of his decision to resign his job, she had no idea. What’s more he was doing a runner out of the country. Chambers had gone, and ‘A’ had made world news when he defected to the other side, and that is perhaps the way Number 6 would have gone had they not got to him first! But really is that any reason to have ZM73 abducted to the village? After all, if you can’t chuck up a job things have come to a pretty pass, to quote Number 2. But I suppose it all depends on what job you did and what you know. Perhaps his resignation had nothing whatsoever to do with it, that Number 6 had been abducted to the village in order to make sure the knowledge inside his head was secure, that he would not talk under any circumstances.
    But they need not have worried, Number 6 was still loyal, he still put a value on the Official Secrets Act he would have had to sign. So, in not extracting the information, Number 6 was in the village to have that knowledge protected. But if that’s the case why did the doctor in ‘Dance of the Dead’ try and extract information, but then again did he? After all he didn’t ask for details, just heading of files he had seen of projects he knew about. It seemed that the doctor was going to an awful lot of trouble for so little. But then they were used to that, so many elaborate plans and schemes, and for what? Precious little as far as I can see! They might have saved themselves a great deal of time and effort. What did it matter why he resigned, I stopped asking myself that question a long time ago. But I’m sure he must have agonized over that decision a long time, and after he had taken it, it must have given him much anguish after he had made it.

Be seeing you
