Welcome to The Tally Ho, a podcast about the classic TV series The Prisoner.
In this episode we look at Checkmate, the ninth episode of The Prisoner. After taking part in a game of human chess, Number 6 (Patrick McGoohan) believes he has found a foolproof way to tell which of his fellow residents are also prisoners, and which are really on the side of The Village. Armed with this knowledge he begins to assemble a team for a daring escape attempt.
Join us as we discuss this episode which contains some of the most iconic visuals of the whole series and a terrific supporting cast. We are then joined once again by Rick Davy of The Unmutual to discuss Checkmate and the upcoming ‘Not a Number’ event to celebrate the life and career of Patrick McGoohan. A pair of tickets to the event on 23 June is up for grabs for Tally Ho listeners – tune in to Rick’s news round-up to find out more!
