This blog is in rememberance of Patrick McGoohan who sadly passed away today at the age of 80 years. He was best known for starring in cult 1960s TV show The Prisoner. The actor, who was born in New York, was raised in England and Ireland. It is often forgotten that he was also a writer and wrote some of the episodes of The Prisoner himself, under a different name. In The Prisoner his character spent the entire time attempting to escape from The Village and finding out the identity of his captor, the elusive Number One.
He repeatedly declared: "I am not a number - I am a free man!"
