The Prisoner was first aired in the autumn of 1967, and was the creation of Patrick McGoohan, George Markstein and David Tomblin. The series concerns an agent (some would say John Drake of Danger Man/Secret Agent), played by McGoohan, kidnapped and taken to a place known only as "The Village," where he is known as "Number Six." He is interrogated by a succession of Number Twos, who want to know why he resigned. His attempts to escape and pursue the answer to his question, "Who is Number One?" occupy many of the episodes.
