    • The parallels with 'The Prisoner' are astounding. Drake assumes a disguise to go to a closed 'village' somewhere in Eastern Europe. Here British people who have willingly defected to the East live and work in a perfect recreation of an English village, although the environs look more like an unfinished shopping precinct in a 1960s new town (it was shot in 1964, remember). The object of the village is to train spies so that they can pass themselves off as being British. Drake infiltrates the village and finds that his fellow Brits have been attracted there for various reasons: love, money, status or ideology. No-one can leave and everyone is under constant surveillance. Drake gets to meet a 'Number 2' and a 'Number 1'. There are surreal twists, for example when on a guided tour also included is a display of electro-shock torture. The main difference is that in this case Drake manages to leave the village after a single episode. Here are the seeds of the Prisoner. An amusing footnote for the fans of Number 6.
