Welcome to The Tally Ho, a new podcast about the classic TV series The Prisoner.
In this episode we look at Free For All, the fourth episode of The Prisoner. Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) runs against Number 2 (Eric Portman) in the Village election. But a fair and free democracy is incompatible with the aims of the Village, and Number 6 finds himself manipulated into a power grab beyond his control. Join us as we discuss this satirical and surreal take on the relationship between politics and the people.
Alan is an author of guidebooks to SF television series, plays, audio dramas, and stories. He is the co-author, with Fiona Moore, of Fall Out: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to The Prisoner (Telos Publishing, 2007).
We also get a news round up from Rick Davy of The Unmutual on what’s happening in the world of The Prisoner.
