The Prisoner (Original)Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
The Prisoner remains unique in the world of television: a taut psycho-thriller about a secret agent who retires and finds himself thrown into a Kafka-esque world of mind play and enigma — a man known only as No. 6. A major cult following has built up around this inventive and ground-breaking series. Multi-talented double Emmy©-winner Patrick McGoohan created, stars in and produced the series. He also wrote and directed many of the episodes.
