Give Our Regards to Number One

In the 1960s British actor Patrick McGoohan helped create and starred in a TV series titled The Prisoner, a surrealist drama where a spy who tried to quit was incarcerated in an unknown location called "The Village" in an effort to extract information from him.

Here's a clip of the introduction to each episode:



And this is his response to "Number Two" (we never see One) when McGoohan's character is labeled Number Six:



The series was short, but has a cult following to this day.

McGoohan's last prominent role was as King Edward I Longshanks in Braveheart. He died today in California, aged 80.

Number Six is now free.

Rest in Peace, Patrick.

"Be seeing you."
