The Tally Ho - The Prisoner episode 16: Once Upon A Time

Updated 6 months ago.

The Tally Ho welcomes you to The Village as we continue our journey through classic TV series The Prisoner. In this episode we look at Once Upon A Time, the sixteenth episode of The Prisoner.

Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) and Number 2 (Leo McKern) enter the 'Embryo Room' to undergo Degree Absolute, a seven-day experimental process in which Number 6 is regressed to a childlike state and Number 2 takes on the roles of authority figures throughout his life. As the days and nights pass, the balance of power between the two men shifts and they are both pushed to psychological breaking point.

Join us as we discuss this truly remarkable episode which combines elements of the Theatre of the Absurd and psychoanalysis to explore the lengths that Number 2 is willing to go to in order to break Number 6 and the risks that the Village will take to finally find out why he resigned. And stay tuned for the news from the world of The Prisoner from Rick Davy of The Unmutual.

Be seeing you!
