THE PRISONER starred the late, multi-talented McGoohan (who also created and produced the series, as well as wrote and directed many of the episodes), as a man who, after retiring from a top-secret government job, is abducted from his London home. Eventually he finds himself in a peaceful village that, in reality, is quite sinister: people are brought there against their will, in order to have their valuable knowledge protected or “extracted.” Known only as Number Six (everyone in the Village is assigned a number), THE PRISONER struggles to keep his information from his captors, discover who can and can’t be trusted and, ultimately, how to escape.
