"There's not been another series quite like the peculiarly plotted and sinisterly oppressive world of The Prisoner. The hero Patrick McGooghan's backstory is almost as impenetrable as the reasons behind his kidnapping and relocation to 'The Village.' As such, we're kept guessing with each tantalizing morsel of new information."

"Patrick McGoohan as Number Six This great show was the brainchild of genius Patrick McGoohan. Many great writers and an excellent cast helped to make this a memorable limited series."

"Prior to being sent to The Village, Number 6 is seen driving this 1965 Lotus 7 Series S. Here is the star in the car. Navigating the confusing British roads. And after arriving at his destination. These shots are from the episode "The Girl Who Was Death". The car used in the series was a 1965 Lotus Super 7 S2 demonstrator powered by a Coswoth 1500 engine. They were produced from 1961 to 1968.

"A great show. Patrick McGoohan took his "Secret Agent Man" character and placed him is a classic late-60s psychedelic trip. Poked fun at a lot of British mores and late-60s Western society in general."

"S03-E01: Olivia In the alternate universe, we see an old-fashioned penny-farthing bicycle, the kind with a big front wheel and a small back wheel. These bicycles were used as a symbol in the British TV series The Prisoner. That series also featured several episodes where the Prisoner, Number Six, is brainwashed and reprogrammed, and where he encounters counterparts to people that he knows. "

Escape is nearly impossible as "The Village" has amazing but deadly weapons to use if a"

Come in No.6, your time is up! (13 tv items)

"McGoohan not only produced 'The Prisoner', he also wrote, directed and starred in that show. He used two pseudonyms, writing "Free for All" as Paddy Fitz and directing "Many Happy Returns" and "A Change of Mind" as Joseph Serf. He also wrote "Once Upon A Time" and "Fall Out" using his own name. The seven episodes were increased to seventeen. The main character, No.6, spends the entire series trying to escape from The Village and to learn the identity of his nemesis, Number One. He does escape i"
