'The Prisoner' is my favourite television show. I watch the whole series from start to finish at least once a year, and I'm just about to start my annual viewing now. I know I will be entertained, intrigued, amused and confused by it. I will be annoyed about how the series veers off course, and shake my head when it reaches its abrupt and unsatisfactory end. That's just the way it is, I'm afraid, I can't stop myself.
