    Such a shame the OG Number Six will not be around to chime in with comments on the up coming new series. Be Seeing You!

    R.I.P. He was one of the greatest actors and creative people of his generation. Be seeing you, Mr McGoohan. My thoughts are with his family.

    Very original and exciting actor. I never saw him in anything that I disliked. I'm sure those of us that know his work will dearly miss him.

    All "Prisoner" fans should watch this video:

    The band (who were born in 1962 and 1963 – the song was a 1982 release, so they were like 18 or 19; thus, too young to remember the first run, and grew up before VCRs were common) had apparently never heard of "The Prisoner", and the video producer didn't show them any episodes until *after* filming was finished.

    Somebody made a comic book of "The Prisoner." I've got an issue or two someplace. Ah, it was Dean Motter!It's funny. Everybody remembers "The Prisoner." But that was unofficially based on "Danger Man" or "Secret Agent." A semi-spin off. He made 47 episodes of "Danger Man" and only 17 of "The Prisoner" too. McGoohan played both "Danger Man" and Number 6. Both were spies. But McGoohan didn't have the rights to "Danger Man," when he produced "The Prisoner". Which is one reason nobody ever says Number 6's name!I also remember "The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh." That was a Disney Action movie with a sort of "Superhero" twist. Dr. Syn disguises himself as The Scarecrow to right the wrongs of 18th Century England. Bo Hampton could do a killer adaptation of that! But maybe I'm the only one who would pay to read it.

    This really sucks. We lose Patrick, very next day lose Ricardo… and it's not like it hasn't happened before. Heinlein died about a day after Cliff Simak, and Jimmy Stewart outlived Bob Mitchum by maybe 36 hours. Which was a real surprise; as potent a boozer as Mitchum was, I figured he wouldn't have lived as long as he did…Bye, Patrick. Be seeing you…Miles
