The Prisoner: The Official Companion to the Classic TV Series
It's 35 years since Patrick McGoohan's thriller series The Prisoner, a strange blend of espionage, psychodrama and fantasy, first entranced the British public. Tracing the program's evolution from sixties' curiosity to worldwide cult, the book examines the volatile social and political background which shaped its development. With an episode-by-episode analysis, a wealth of previously unpublished photographs, production designs, props and memorabilia, production details, cast biographies and interviews with the cast and crew, The Prisoner: The Official Companion to the Classic TV Series is the ultimate guide to what is now viewed as one of the seminal television series of its time. It will be promoted on the dozens of rabid Prisoner websites.
