I really like the style of this piece; your prose is very British in style, and the descriptive narrative is very well-written and interesting. I particularly like the part near the beginning where Six is likening Two to a professor, and makes emphasis on the loose threads. I think it fits with the rest of the story too. Maybe I missed something somewhere, and I'll honestly say that I don't know much about this show, but the weirdness of their tea conversation seems to convey that idea of frayed edges, as if there's just something not right going on - or, as if Two is sort of off in the head a bit.

Fascinating concept. What I like about this is that it could be the start of a transitional story between the classic 'Prisoner' and the new ITV series that started last night. The transformation has begun between The Villiage beside the sea and The Villiage in the desert. Of course, the scenes may change but the trap is the same and, as Number 6 pointed out, they are all but players in a far greater play.
The touch with the cellphone and laptop was nice, as was the change of the map. I wonder if this is the first step between Number 6 becoming Number 93?

An excellent piece.
The tone of The Prisoner is very difficult to portray, and yet you've managed it.
The dialogue is good. I don't know if it was intentional, but the slight shounen-ai vibe Number 2 gives off has great mind-f* potential.

Very good. I had no idea this old series still had a fandom. Your writing is very crisp and British, and suits the original material very well.

I am very pleased to see such a fine portrayal of a brilliant series. Sadly, the television series had to end. Patrick McGoohan would be pleased with the efforts you have put into creating this piece. RIP Patrick McGoohan.

I think you've captured the essence of Number 6 (dare I call him John Drake?) very well here. I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

I can't believe there were no Prisoner stories until now. I'm assuming that this has to do with Patrick McGoohan's recent death. Anyway, I can't tell you how glad I am to see stories about one of the greatest television shows ever. I'm glad it's not a one-shot. Very interesting so far.

I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed this story. I've been looking for some decent Prisoner fiction for years and it has been a fairly fruitless search. My wife suggested that I try this site out and on doing so I found this story. It made for a very pleasant change.
Congratulations on capturing the feel of the series, something most others (including the official novels) fail to do. Please do continue to write this. I'll be coming back to the site in the future, and this story alone has made me feel that way.
