Storyline

Yet another Number two is retiring to make way for a successor,who will receive the hand-over at a ceremony. Number Six hears that a bomb made by the Watch-maker is to be detonated at the ceremony, killing the retiring Number two and, with the Watch-maker's daughter, goes to warn him. However it turns out that the intended victim is somebody else altogether and their death could spell calamity for the whole village. Number Six must stop this plan. Written by don @ minifie-1

When #2's assistant switches #6's watch, you can see the hour and minute hands are not in the same position; surely #6 would notice the time on his watch was now different, even if it had stopped. See more »

Too Many Twos!

Once again Number Six must put aside his own agenda to protect the village. Since they are mindless followers, it is necessary sometimes to look out for them. In this episode an attractive young woman knows that her father is somehow complicit in an assassination attempt on Number Two, the village leader. If he were to be assassinated it would go badly for the villagers. His successor could bring harsh reprisals against the citizens. He would have the authority to act more cruelly than was previously done. Number Six warns the man currently holding the Number Two position but this guy is actually the heir apparent to the one that has been away. He is orchestrating everything, including discrediting Number Six who is often looked up to by the citizenry. If he is made to sound crazy enough, the villagers will discount him. The struggle is to find the specifics of the plot and prevent it from happening. Better the enemy you know than the one who inherits the throne.
