A Favourite Scene In A Change of Mind

    “All charmingly domestic…I think I’d like some tea,”
    Number 6 cannot stand girls who can’t make a decent cup of tea, and gives Number 86 a lesson in brewing a proper cup of tea. He can also boil eggs for his breakfast when push comes to shove, unless he has someone like Nadia to boil them for him! In fact for breakfast in ‘Arrival’ the Prisoner has two fried eggs with bacon, along with toast and marmalade, tea with lemon, yet touches none of it. I expect he wasn’t hungry. And yet No.6 only appears to enjoy a hearty breakfast when it’s brought to him on a tray by a maid. And yet since that privilege had been rescinded he just has two boiled eggs for breakfast and in the day a ham sandwich, as seen in both ‘Hammer Into Anvil’ and ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling.’ Perhaps it’s always the way with bachelors who cannot be bothered to cook for themselves. Other meals could be eaten out at the café.

Be seeing you
