After quitting his post, secret agent ZM73 wakes up imprisoned in a bizarre village with a new identity.

The original 17-episode TV series of The Prisoner created intrigue and controversy in equal measure when it first aired in the UK in 1967. In a taut psychological spy thriller the main character, dehumanised as ‘Number 6’, has committed no crime, save for having resigned from some unspecified branch of the British Secret Service. His prison is a heavily guarded coastal village.

Under constant surveillance, Number 6 can trust no-one and relentlessly works to establish who his captors are, a seemingly impossible task when the most senior figure he encounters – Number 2 – changes frequently...

Mark Elstob stars as Agent ZM73 aka Number 6, with John Standing as Number Two, Sara Powell as Number 9, Helen Goldwyn as the Village Voice , Sarah Mowat as Zero Six Two, Jim Barclay as Control and Barnaby Edwards as Number 34.
