I recall watching this the first time around. Jools Holland was
evidently a fan of The Prisoner and was having a marvellous time
dressing in his Village blazer and gigging about Portmeirion. I think
the original hilarity stemmed from the fact that he had 'resigned' from
the hugely popular Youth TV programme 'The Tube' which also showcased
the ultimately-tragic Paula Yates. Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie added
their (then) double-act to the fray and the strange Gobbledygook man
was spoonerising about the place, presumably because he was
contemporaneous to The Prisoner.
Patrick McGoohan kept popping up in grainy Out-takes with Fry being pithy about him all the time. There was a mildly amusing part where a clever bit of editing put a supposedly old and bearded Number Six behind some bushes, steadfastly refusing to leave the Village despite Fry assuring him he was no longer a prisoner.
Generally an affectionate tribute rather than a Remake.
