The Prisoner The Complete Series
It was always going to be a brave move to attempt to remake such an iconic and acclaimed cult television show. However, that didn’t stop this new take on the 1960s programme The Prisoner, which originally starred Patrick McGoohan as the man trapped in The Village, where people have names instead of numbers. For the remade version of The Prisoner, the cast this time features Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen, and the story has been relocated to American shores.
Part action series, part psychedelic fantasy, part allegory, Patrick McGoohan's masterpiece, The Prisoner, was initially touted as a sequel to his earlier spy series, Danger Man. But when it was first broadcast in 1967 TV audiences were puzzled; when the show was cancelled 17 episodes later due to declining viewing figures, no one was any the wiser.
