Insoluble For Both Man And Machine!

    ‘Arrival,’ and the first human being the Prisoner encounters is seen leaning out of a lower window of the Bell Tower. And yet as quick as he may be, the Prisoner does not encounter the figure of the man he saw leaning out of that window. There is absolutely no sign of him. No satisfactory explanation has ever been given. He could have been faster on his feet than the Prisoner, and managed to find a hiding place. But why should the figure run away if he was not to have been seen? That in itself makes the man an enigma, because it’s inexplicable, and that is what makes ‘the Prisoner’ ‘the Prisoner!’

Be seeing you
