The Prisoner

The Prisoner is a 17-episode British TV series first broadcast in Canada beginning on 6 September 1967, then in the UK on 29 September 1967, and in the US on 1 June 1968. It stars and was co-created by Patrick McGoohan, and combines spy fiction with elements of science fiction, allegory and psychological drama. The series follows a British former secret agent who is abducted and imprisoned in a mysterious coastal village resort, where his captors try to find out why he abruptly resigned from his job. Although the show was sold as a thriller in the mould of the previous series starring McGoohan, Danger Man (1960–68; retitled as Secret Agent in the US), its combination of 1960s countercultural themes and surrealistic setting had a far-reaching influence on science fiction and fantasy TV programming, and on narrative popular culture in general.A TV miniseries remake aired on the US cable channel AMC between 15 and 17 November 2009. This was followed by another remake as an audio drama in 2015 by Big Finish Productions.
