The Prisoner at 50!

A long-term cult favourite, Patrick McGoohan’s 1967-68 17-episode television series The Prisoner is as relevant today as the day it was broadcast, 50 years ago. Each week, on the day of the 50th anniversary of the first UK transmission, author Brian J. Robb publishes here an essay looking at each episode in depth. Join the journey, starting on 29 September 2017 and running weekly to 1 February 2018 (with the odd original transmission break). Additional, join the discussion and share your views and experiences of The Prisoner by adding your own comments and feedback. Be seeing you!
