The Tally Ho: The fall out from Fall Out pt 2

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

Rounding off our coverage of the season finale Fall Out, following on from our discussion episode and returning guest special, we throw open the podcast to our listeners to give us their take on the dramatic conclusion of The Prisoner and what the show means to them.

We were sent a wide variety of takes on the show from listeners Chris Dodd, Joseph Dickerson, Kev from Flames of the Lizard Birds, Thomas (Beyond Reason), Jason (One Word Long), Michael Pomerantz, Jon Roy, Maire Neale and Pete Horgan. We’ll be reading through their theories and discussing the ideas raised about The Prisoner and Fall Out. You can find out more about Joseph’s interest in The Prisoner on his blog. You may also be interested in Jason and his wife’s website which discusses the classic era of The Simpsons and its impact on popular culture.

Cakes & Ale Episode 26: The Shapeshifting Detective – chat with D’Avekki studios


Join us as we talk all about The Shapeshifting Detective, the latest FMV game from D’Avekki Studios, with the brains behind the game, Tim and Lynda Cowles. The Shapeshifting Detective places you in the shoes of ‘Sam’, a being with the ability to morph into anyone they meet, on the trail of a murderer in the mysterious town of August. A trio of tarot readers seem to have predicted the murder before it happened. But why are they here? And who in this strange town can be trusted, when everyone is hiding a secret?

We’re also joined by two of the wonderful cast members of the game, Anarosa De Eizaguirre Butler who plays Bronwyn Castle, the leader of the tarot readers, and Rupert Booth, who plays local police chief Dupont, to discuss what it’s like acting in FMV games.

D’Avekki Studios broke the FMV Guiness World Record with their previous game, The Infections Madness of Doctor Dekker, and return now with a spooky murder mystery in which the player can unlock the hidden truths of characters by asking the right questions while posing as the right people. Tim and Lynda explain how such a labyrinthine game comes together from the original concept to the game design and ultimately the film shoot. You can follow D’Avekki on Twitter and YouTube to find out more and hear about their upcoming plans, and you can also follow Tim and Lynda themselves and the game’s publisher, Wales Interactive.

Anarosa De Eizaguirre Butler is an actress and broadcaster who hosts shows on BarcelonaCity FM every Friday and Saturday. You can find her on Twitter and Instagram.

Rupert Booth is an actor and writer who will be known to listeners of The Tally Ho as a passionate fan of The Prisoner and author of the Patrick McGoohan biography Not a Number. You can find him on Twitter, and catch his previous appearances on the podcast taking about Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling and Fall Out.
