Summary

Summary

Regarded by many as the finest television drama ever produced, The Prisoner has intrigued viewers since it was originally aired in the late 1960s. Only 17 episodes were ever made, each of them riddled with symbolism and unanswerable questions. In this second book in his two-volume series, Prisoner expert Robert Fairclough has collected and annotated the original shooting scripts for the series, which include a number of variations on the episodes as broadcast. The Prisoner: The Original Scripts Volume One, which includes the first eight episodes as well as the script for the unproduced episode "The Outsider," will bring a new dimension to the understanding and appreciation of this enigmatic television series.
