I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own. Psychedelic, surreal, insane. Compelling and intriguing. The Prisoner was one of the most unique, innovative and influential television series of all time. An icon of Sci-Fi. The series was the brainchild of star Patrick McGoohan who, along with co-creator George Markstein, wanted to explore spy fiction along with elements of science fiction, allegory and psychological drama.
