The Schizoid Man
Never mind who is Number 1 – just who is Number 6? The Prisoner awakes in a new apartment to find his appearance has changed overnight & is now suddenly left-handed. He is greeted by all as Number 12 whilst an identical twin is parading The Village claiming to be Number 6. Has he been driven mad, or could the masquerade be used to his advantage?

The General
A 3 year university course in 3 minutes? It’s possible with SPEEDLEARN, a new subliminal teaching process devised by the mysterious General & taught by The Professor. Even The Prisoner is a top pupil – but a warning from The Professor leads Number 6 to believe the process could be used to teach more than just history.

Many Happy Returns
No morning wake up call? The Village is deserted and the prisoner seizes the moment to escape. Building a raft & gathering supplies, Number 6 sets sail for several weeks. Following a tumultuous journey, he makes it back to London, discovering a “Mrs. Butterworth” driving his car and living in his home. Yet despite his escape from The Village the question still remains – who can he trust?

Dance Of The Dead
It’s carnival time in The Village but The Prisoner is in no mood for celebration. Upon discovering a dead man on the beach, Number 6 plans to send the body back to sea complete with a rescue note. But his plans are foiled when the body is discovered leading to a bizarre trial where he is sentenced to death.
