With the early success of ‘The Prisoner Variations,’ and the later one with ‘The Prisoner – Dusted Down,’ ‘A New Arrival, and ‘An Exercise In Logistics’ the author now brings you ‘The Prisoner – A New No.2’.
All good stories begin with the words “Once Upon A time.” No.2 lies dead on the floor of the cage in the embryo room. No.6 has vanquished his opponent having survived the ultimate test. And yet there is no joy in his victory as it has cost the death of a man. No.2 was a good man, but now in No.6 they have someone who will be better.
‘A New No.2’ works on the principle that ‘Once Upon A Time’ could have been the cliff-hanger to a 13 part first series of the Prisoner, in this I have been able to avoid the trial of ‘Fall Out’ and take the Prisoner in an altogether different direction!
with all good fairy tales beginning with ‘Once Upon A Time’ the first chapter is
a short resume of that episode. No.2 lies dead on the floor in the cage. The
Supervisor having entered the embryo room asks No.6 what it is he wants?
“I’ll take you.”
However No.6 is not escorted to a cavern somewhere beneath the Village, but to the Green Dome. No.2 was a good man, but in having survived the ultimate test THEY have got a man who will be better! Now promoted to the position of a new No.2, the former No.6 must adapt to change, accept, and learn to take to his new responsibility of the Village and its citizens. If there’s anything he wants to know all he has to do is press a button! There is no question of escape, no possibility of bringing down the system from within. How will our former friend No.6 take to his new role as Chief Administrator of the village?
The novel to be published on my blog two chapters will be published each week on Monday’s and Thursday’s commencing soon.
‘The Prisoner – A New No.2’ is published under the banner of “Fan Fiction” from which no money will be earned.
Be seeing you
