This week we've given you information, Information, INFORMATION with the reveal of the cast for The Prisoner: Volume 1.
Brilliant stage actor Mark Elstob (Emmerdale, Hamlet, Salome) will take on the role of Number Six, a secret agent imprisoned in the mysterious community known as the Village. Desperate to learn his secrets, the Village's authorities use ever more ingenious methods to bend Number Six to their will.

Other members of the cast include Sara Powell, Kristina Buikaite, Jez Fielder, Helen Goldwyn, Jim Barclay, Barnaby Edwards and Sarah Mowat. Check out the trailer below:
