It seems that Christopher Eccleston, perhaps one of the best things about the Doctor Who revival (before his acrimonious exit), may be in line to play Number 6 in an upcoming revival of The Prisoner. The original series is, for my money, one of the finest series ever produced for television. It’s unknown whether Patrick McGoohan will have any involvement, but Eccleston’s intensity, I’m sure, will serve well. Let’s just hope the scripts and the execution are in the right place.
