Quotes

[first lines]
Sir Charles: Cipher, coding, optics, film labs, computers, experts in every field, and yet we're still left with 36 rather dreary and badly photographed color shots. Yet I'm convinced they contain the clue we want. Have you tried superimposing?

9 June 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Number six(Patrick McGoohan) is stunned to find out one day that his body is no longer his own, as he has been used in a new device that has swapped his mind in another man's body, in this case called the colonel(played by Nigel Stock) and now he must find the inventor whom he once knew in order to reverse the process, which is exactly what the village wants, and why it has released him from his prison - sort of- since he most certainly wants his old body back! Easily the least in the canon doesn't look or feel at all like a part of the series, and is even absurd really(with an unconvincing fiancée!), but a neat twist ending compensates.
