The Prisoner Returneth...

Thanks to eddyfate for the link to this.

Some mixed news about the TV remake of The Prisoner. The good news is that Christopher Eccleston looks like to get the lead role as Number 6 but Granda Television are promising some radical changes. Now updating it with technology, etc, is expected but they're thinking of using an exotic location for The Village so that might be very different from the original 60's setting.

Anyway, read on...  New Role For Doctor Who Who Became Prisoner Of Own Success (The Times Online; Thursday 4th May 2006)

No Portmeirion? It's not The Prisoner!

So excited!!

Granted it is a shame they are not using Portmerion, but there is so much more to the series than the look of a single holiday resort.

While I'm nervous about what they might do with my favourite series,
I'm not going to be like the Battlestar fans screaming 'Starbuck is a woman!!' Especially as she in particular turned out to be one of the best things in a fantastic show.

I'll save all my judgements for when I've actually seen an episode.
That is if I can wait without exploding!!
