Product Overview

One of the most challenging and though-provoking television series of all time, THE PRISONER is the strange saga of a former government operative (Patrick McGoohan) sent to a twisted prison known as "the village." Known only as No. 6, he engages in a battle of wills with the powers that be (represented by the nefarious and constantly changing No. 2 and a bizarre, chilling presence called "the Rover") who wish to extract his secrets and break his spirit.

Digitally re-mastered and presented in its original order. This set includes the three episodes that served notice to the TV world that a whole new hero--and type of show--had arrived:

  • Arrival--No. 6 awakens in his London apartment--except it is no longer in London!
  • Dance of the Dead--Can a corpse be used to get a message to the outside world?
  • Free for All--In the Village elections, the Prisoner runs for the position of No. 2, but democracy is somehow different here...

    The DVD collection of THE PRISONER #1 includes bonus material that takes viewers behind the scenes of the legendary show, making it the ultimate set for collectors.
