The Prisoner Handbook: An Unauthorized Companionby Steven Paul Davies, Alex Cox (Foreword by), Alex Cox, Six of One (Contribution by)
The Prisoner reaches its 35th anniversary in 2002. The series has puzzled and intrigued viewers since it was originally shown on ITV in the late 1960s. Only seventeen episodes were ever made; each one of them is riddled with symbolism and poses unanswerable questions. The Prisoner captures the imagination as few programmes have done before or since and has become a true television phenomenon.
Including interviews with Patrick McGoohan, Kenneth Griffith, Alexis Kanner and Anton Rogers, The Prisoner Handbook reveals more information than ever previously known about the characters portrayed, the cast themselves and what it was really like during production. Complete with a foreword by Alex Cox and a full episode-by-episode guide, as well as an examination of the significance of the series today, this is a complete handbook to television's most enigmatic series.
