The Tally Ho – Episode 14: Living in Harmony

Welcome to The Tally Ho, a podcast about the classic TV series The Prisoner. In this episode we look at Living in Harmony, the fourteenth episode of The Prisoner.

In an unusual Western spin on The Prisoner, The Stranger (Patrick McGoohan) resigns from his role of Sheriff in the Old West, but is captured and brought to the mysterious town of Harmony, whose citizens are governed by the ruthless Judge (David Bauer). However, refusal to conform and take up the role of Sheriff in this new town brings him into confrontation with Judge and his unhinged right-hand man, The Kid (Alexis Kanner). Assisted by Kathy, the saloon girl, The Stranger is forced to confront the criminal elements in this lawless town but in doing so, unravels the reality of where, and who, he really is.

Join us as we discuss this striking episode which uses the Western genre to explore the social and political ethos of The Prisoner in a refreshing new setting. And stay tuned for the news from the world of The Prisoner from Rick Davy of The Unmutual, and a preview of our upcoming interview with Living in Harmony writer Ian L. Rakoff.

The Tally Ho – Episode 13: Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling

Welcome to The Tally Ho, a podcast about the classic TV series The Prisoner.

In this episode we look at Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, the thirteenth episode of The Prisoner. Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) is subjected to a bizarre experiment in which is mind is transferred into the body of a another man (Nigel Stock). Placed back in his London home with his memories of The Village erased, he struggles to convince the people closest to him of his true identity, including his fiancée Janet (Zena Walker).

His only hope may be to track down Professor Seltzman (Hugo Schuster), the missing scientist who invented the mind transference procedure and may have perfected its reversal. But it seems that everyone is looking for Seltzman, and hoping that Number 6 will lead them straight to him…

Join us as we discuss this strange episode in which Patrick McGoohan is notably absent! We are then joined by actor and writer Rupert Booth, the author of the wonderful McGoohan biography Not A Number to discuss McGoohan’s life and work. A huge thanks to Rupert for joining us! We also get our usual news round-up from Rick Davy of The Unmutual. And we take a look at some of our Twitter followers’ suggestions for their dream actor to have played Number 2 in the series!

Welcome to The Tally Ho, a podcast about the classic TV series The Prisoner. In this episode we look at A Change of Mind, the twelfth episode of The Prisoner.

Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) is hauled before the Village committee on charges of being “unmutual”, an anti-social member of the community. Unable and unwilling to engage with the process that is expected to rehabilitate him, he faces the prospect of undergoing “instant social conversion” at the hands of the Village surgeons. But Number 2 (John Sharp) has his own plan in mind to try and get Number 6 to finally reveal why he resigned.

Join us as we discuss this episode which touches on political show trials, social isolation and mob mentality. And stay tuned for the news from the world of The Prisoner from Rick Davy of The Unmutual.
