During The Chimes of Big Ben

   No.6 encounters two more past associates, the Colonel and Fotheringay. I liked Fotheringay, he seemed a genuine sort. But I discovered that even he betrayed No.6, and after seeming to be so delighted to see his old colleague again! Oh I’m sure Fotheringay would be alright despite any possible embarrassing questions, as the Devil looks after his own! So that’s two ex-colleagues of the former ZM73 who work for the village, 3 including the Colonel! He has the bearing of an ex-army officer. However the colonel is something of an objectionable man, whose scepticism stands out a mile, I do not like him at all. He does not suffer fools gladly, but this only makes him even more obnoxious, for he sees everything in black and white. He’s a  very cynical man, or at least as far as the Prisoner {his ex- colleague} is concerned. He has a very sarcastic nature, with a very jaundiced view of things. I hope he realized the full penalty for the failure of this plan to extract the reason behind the Prisoner’s resignation! Mind you is that reason so really important in order to go to such an extraordinary and elaborate plan as this? I wouldn’t have thought so, except as a way to get the Prisoner to talk about other matters. It’s as No.2 said at the beginning, if he would answer one simple question all the rest will follow. Well yes I suppose so, but the first No.2 in ‘Arrival’ tried that, he managed to get the Prisoner to give away the information of his date of birth, but then clammed up. Having realized they probably had that information anyway, but simply omitted it from his file. Therefore he saw no reason not to give that information away about himself.

Be seeing you
