We love StoriesBig Finish produce great full-cast audio drama for CD and download, featuring many popular television fantasy series.
We can now reveal the cover for Volume Two of The Prisoner, based on the classic ITV series, continuing at Big Finish!
Written and directed by Nicholas Briggs, and starring Mark Elstob as Number Six, The Prisoner Volume 2 is coming in August.
Check out the cover art of this highly anticipated series, the second volume in the audio revival of the cult 1960s TV show.
January 16th, 1967... A secret agent resigns, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in ‘The Village’ - a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of The Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantel of Number Six.
The authorities running this Village are intent on discovering why Number Six resigned - but it’s a secret he steadfastly refuses to divulge. As the drama unfolds, the authorities, in the guise of the sinister Number Two, try ever more ingenious and aggressive means to bend Number Six to their will. All the while, Number Six is intent on two aims: to escape and to find out ‘Who is Number One?’.
Volume 1 received phenomenal reviews from critics:
‘This box set is a triumph.' Reviews in Time and Space
'It is quite possibly the best thing that Big Finish has ever produced.' Alan Hayes SpyVibe
'A bold and brave retelling of the original, keeping everything that worked in the original, but giving the series a lot more edge, actually a lot more cruel and disturbing feel.' Planet Mondas
'Elstob gives a commanding and volatile performance... this new imagining of The Prisoner creates an immersive world that we will not be seeking to escape from anytime soon. 5 stars.' Cultbox
