The girl who was death - Superb episode.
26 March 2010 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

Justine Lord looks ravishing. Shame she didn't keep on as an actress (she more or less stopped in the mid 1970's) In one scene, she drives away from the fairground (actually filmed in Southend) in a white E-Type Jaguar, hotly pursued by Number 6 in a Lotus Elan. At the time, the E-Type was the quintessential sports supercar and how good they still look. The Lotus Elan would have murdered the E-Type on corners and the Jag would easily have beaten the Lotus in terms of top speed. A gorgeous chick in an E-Type would have been every young man's fantasy (It certainly was mine). Cars aside, I loved this very surreal episode. It had everything and even though it wasn't set in "The Village", so what? - it was exciting, entertaining, coherent, very well directed and produced. - One of the very best of the 17 episodes - if not the best.

Kenneth Griffith does an admirable job of playing a deranged, egotist nut case. Justine Lord takes on the role of a smooth-as-silk psychopathic killer to perfection. Why can't they make programs like this nowadays? IMHO The Prisoner was the best of the best of the best. (Yes, I'm an ardent fan...)
